Lyrics
NEAR YOU

I could sing you sad songs,
Sing you songs, to make you smile.
I could sing you love songs,
But would that be worth my while

CHORUS
When all I want to do,
Is be near you.

I haven't any money,
And I haven't any land.
I once had lots of money,
But it slipped right through my hand.

CHORUS

I don't want you to read me tea leaves,
I don't want you to read my palm.
I just want you to walk beside me,
And see the kind of man I am.

CHORUS

I could sing you sad songs,
Sing you songs, to make you smile.
I could sing you love songs,
But would that be worth my while
