IF I SHOULD FALL BEHIND

Album version

We said we'd walk together, baby, come what may
That come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we're walking a hand should slip free
I'll wait for you, and should I fall behind wait for me

We swore we'd travel, darling, side by side
We'd help each other stay in stride
But each lover's steps fall so differently
But I'll wait for you, and if I should fall behind wait for me

Now everyone dreams of love lasting and true
Oh but you and I know what this world can do
So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
And I'll wait for you, and if I should fall behind wait for me

Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
I'll wait for you, and should I fall behind wait for me
Darling, I'll wait for you, and should I fall behind wait for me
Yeah I'll wait for you, and should I fall behind wait for me
I'll wait for you, should I fall behind wait for me
I'll wait for you, should I fall [fades out]
