Thanks To You - Lyrics by Emmylou Harris


Lyrics

(jesse winchester)

Well goodness is it really real
It would take a baby child to know the way i feel
On my flutter in the blue
I would take the credit but it's thanks to you

Ooh yeah i'm a sinner and
I ain't some beginner
I'll uncork a pint of trouble
Sit down and drink a double
I'm thirsty for somethin' lighter
That'll get me even tighter
And tighter until one day
I think i hear angels play

Well goodness is it really real
It would take a baby child to know the way i feel
On my flutter in the blue
I would take the credit but it's thanks to you

Now someday up in glory
Well i'll weep and tell the story
To someone who will smile and say
You're a mess but you're my child

Goodness is it real
It would take a baby child to know the way i feel
On my flutter in the blue
I would take the credit but it's thanks to you

Now someday up in glory
Well i'll weep and tell the story
To someone who will smile and say
You're a mess but you're my child

Goodness is it real
It would take a baby child to know the way i feel
On my flutter in the blue
I would take the credit but it's thanks to you
