Verse:
I dream'd all my dreams And schem'd all my schemes, But some -how it just seem'd wrong,
Un -til I met you And then, dear, I knew, To me you must be -long.
 
Chorus:
I could show the world how to smile, I could be glad all of the while,
I could change the grey skies to blue If I Had You.
I could leave the old days be -hind, Leave all my pals, I'd nev -er mind,
I could start my life all a -new If I Had You.
I could climb the snow capp'd moun -tains, Sail the migh -ty o -cean wide,
I could cross the burn -ing des -ert, If I Had You by my side.
I could be a king, dear, un -crown'd, Hum -ble or poor, rich or re -nowned,
There is noth -ing I could -n't do If I Had You.
