            IF I DIDN'T HAVE YOU    Randy Travis

(E)
Well I lost my heart on the day we met
(E)
But I can't do nothing that I don't regret
(E)
Then I hung around util you said I do
(E)                                  (B7)       (E)
I knew I wouldn't have nothing if I didn't have you


E
Well it changed my thinking when you changed your name
E
And neither one of us will ever be the same
E
Now I swear I'm never gonna be untrue
E                                   B7          E
Cause I wouldn't have nothing if I didn't have you

CHORUS:
       A                  E             B7              E
If I didn't have you I'd long ago been left in the dark out in the cold
A                     E                   B7   
Blowing around from town to town like a feather in the wind
      A                  E
If I didn't have you I know where I'd be
B7                         E
Floundering around like a ship at sea
A                          E                               B7 
Lost in the rain of a hurricane and that's where I'd have been

E
But I didn't get lost cause I say your light
E
Shining like a beacon on a cold dark night
E
Then the sun came up and the skies turned blue
E                                 B7          E
No, I wouldn't have nothing if I didn't have you

Lead,
E
Well, I count my blessing every night I pray
E
That the Lord lets me keep you just a-one more day
E
And every day he does cause God knows too
E                                  B7          E
That I wouldn't have nothing if I didn't have you

Go to chorus, to ending

ENDING:
E
But I didn't get lost cause I say your light
E
Shining like a beacon on a cold dark night
E
Then the sun came up and the skies turned blue
E                                 B7          E
No, I wouldn't have nothing if I didn't have you
E      
Well, I've always said it but I swear it's true
E                                     B7         E
I know I wouldn't have nothing if I didn't have you
