Waterfall
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


If I had a waterfall
We wouldn't wonder, not at all
How much fun each day was gonna be

If I had a mountain top
I know we would never stop
Climbing way high up to look and see

If I had a jellyfish
I betcha we would never miss
A single peanut butter kiss or squeeze

If I had a waterfall
It might not make no sense at all
But that won't matter much to you and me

Babies get born, even in a war
I guess just to show us, what livin's for
And my heart still believes that love
For what we need can be enough
If we'll just stop keepin' score

If I had a big giraffe
That tried to dance and made us laugh
Every smile and giggle would be free

If I had a big moonlight
We'd turn it back on every night
Just so the dark could try and get some sleep
And if I had a rocket ship
We'd go places really quick
Then have the time to stop and get ice cream
If I had a big giraffe
He'd have to take a real long bath
And that's why waterfalls are really neat

Babies get born, even in a war
I guess just to show us, what livin's for
And my heart still believes that love
For what we need can be enough
If we'll just stop keepin' score

If I had an everything
We could stand out in the rain
And only feel the drops we wanted to
If I had a wonderful
We could play out in the snow
And never have to wear our socks and shoes
If I had a pot of luck
I wouldn't have to spend a buck
And get all the stuff we needed for a sneeze
If I had an everything
We wouldn't get wet in the rain
And ridin' waterfalls would be a breeze

If I had a big giraffe
He'd have to take a real long bath
And that's why waterfalls are really neat

Its cool that Dwight can do whatever he wants with his musical direction, and doesnt care what the industry thinks. Keep making great music Dwight!

Teresa Castle

Just the balm I needed for my soul in the midst of all this panic. Sweet sentiments to lift your spirits and a heartfelt refrain to put it all in perspective. Delightful. Thanks, Dwight.

Janet Rollins

I love when it says, babies even get born in a war. Dwight’s son this year, so babies do get born in a pandemic. ❤️ he’s the best!

I love this song😎 I just heard it, hard to believe the comments go back 5 years. I came across it on YouTube. Shocker, not the radio

Yeah the Radio Sucks. They won't play real music and Real Talent.

MariaIdilia Batista

This may be my favourite Dwight Yoakam song. My kids are sick of hearing it but it has always made me happy when I play it. So I will keep on listening to it!

Fatima N

Dumb guys out there, always negative, Dwight is a great and fantastic country and i really enjoy his style of singing and his songs with its music. Always appreciate the talented singers to whom God gave a special gift. So, please dont get so jealous and envious of Dwight and say all sort of rubbish which never fits Dwight. From Malaysia

Louise Rawle

There are millions of people who adore Dwight and who are in awe of his immense musical talent,I am happy to admit That I am just one of those fans,but there is still a myriad of envious people..Envy is a terrible thing
