This next pick repeats through the song. Lyle adds little flourishes
here and there but those can evolve later

me and ease my pain

If I Needed You
By Townes Van Zandt as played by Lyle Lovett

Capo 8

[G]If I needed you

Would you come to me
Would you come to [C]me
And [D]ease my [G]pain

If you needed me
I would come to you
I would swim the seas
For to ease your pain

In the night forelorn
Aw, the morning's born
And the morning shines
With the lights of love
You will miss sunrise
If you close your eyes
And 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

Thanks for the music, folks. I'll try to keep the submissions coming.
Please send suggestions or requests since I'm not real good at this, yet.
