If I needed you
Would you come to me
Would you come to me
And ease my pain
If you needed me
I would come to you
I'd swim the seas
For to ease your pain

In the night forlorn
Ah, the morning's born
And the morning shines
With the lights of love
You will miss sunrise
If you close your eyes
That would break
My heart in two

Lady's with me now
Since I showed her how
To lay her lilly hand in mine
Loop and Lil agree
She's a sight to see
And a treasure for
The poor to find

just a funny note. Julia Roberts sings this song to a child in the movie Stepmom. 
This is the right tune for the moment I am in. Lyle is strumming the strings of my heart.   
Lyle is one of my favorite live performances.   
Not normally a Lyle Lovett fan, but his voice here is amazing....
""If I Needed You" is a single written by Townes Van Zandt, most famously performed by American country music artists Emmylou Harris and Don Williams."

I thought so too, and I remember an album of his saying Willie Nelson liked it so much he did a version too...

Something about Lyle Lovett's voice can bring me to tears instantly.  His, and Patty Griffin's voices just resonate for me.  This is a very good song. {#Yes}
One of my favorite Lyle Songs, thanks for the afternoon sing-a-long
Nice Version!  One of my favorite songs covered by the late Townes VanZandt.  Thanks Bill!

But did we really need it?
Lifeless version
Lyle Lovett and Patsy Cline are as close to country as I can get.
We need more Lyle Lovett.

this is a terrific album - he covers Texas song writers.
Some really beautiful stuff - and bears.
