słowa i muzyka: Bob Dylan
( E A    E A   E A    gis   fis   gis  fis   E A   E A )

If not for you, babe, I couldn't find the door,

                           E                A                            gis fis

Couldn't even see the floor, I'd be sad and blue,

                    E A   E A                    

If not for you.


If not for you, babe, I'd lay awake all night,
Wait for the mornin' light to shine in through,
But it would not be new,

If not for you.

If not for you my sky would fall,

Rain would gather too.

Without your love I'd be nowhere at all,

            Fis                                  ( H       A        gis fis )x4   E A

I'd be lost if not for you, and you know it's true.


If not for you my sky would fall,
Rain would gather too.
Without your love I'd be nowhere at all,
Oh! What would I do if not for you.


If not for you,
Winter would have no spring,
Couldn't hear the robin sing,
I just wouldn't have a clue,
Anyway it wouldn't ring true,
If not for you.
