There But For You Go I

Writer(s): A. J. Lerner / F. Loewe
(From The Columbia Years, 1943-1953, Disc6)

This is hard to say, but as I wandered though the lea,
I felt for just a fleeting moment that I suddenly was free
Of being lonely that I close my eyes
And saw the very reason why.
I saw a man with his head bowed low,
His heart had no place to go,
I looked and I thought to myself with a sigh,
There but for you go I.
I saw a man walking by the sea,
Alone with the tide was he.
I looked and I thought as I watched him go by,
There but for you go I.
Lonely men around me, trying not to cry,
Till the day you found me, there among them was I.
I saw a man who had never known
A love that was all his own.
I thought as I thanked all the stars in the sky,
There but for you go I.
