There but for You Go I (From "Brigadoon") [Bonus Track] Lyrics

- Alan Jay Lerner

This is hard to say but as I wandered through the lea

I felt for just a fleeting moment

That I was suddenly free of being lonely;

 

Then I closed my eyes and saw the very reason why

 

I saw a man with his head bowed low

 

His heard had no place to go

 

I looked and I thought to myself with a sigh:

 

There but for you go I

 

I saw a man walking by the sea

 

Alone with the tide was he

 

I looked and I thought as I watched him go by:

 

There but for you go I

 

Lonely men around me trying not to cry;

 

Till the day you found me there among them was I

 

I saw a man

Who had never known a love that was all his own

 

I thought as I thanked all the stars in the sky:

 

There but for you go I
