Verse:
I'm so blue I don't know what to do,  All day long I'm pi - ning just for you,
I did wrong when I let you go a - way,  For now I grieve a - bout you night and day.
I'm un - hap - py and dis - sat - is - fied,  But I'd be hap - py if I had you by my side.
 
Chorus:
If I could be with you I'd love you strong,  If I could be with you I'd love you long,
I want you to know, I would - n't go,  Un - til I told you hon-ey why I love you so.
If I could be with you one hour to - night,  If I were free to do the things we might,
I'm tell - ing you true,  I'd be an - y - thing but blue if I could be with you.
