There but for You Go I
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


This is hard to say, but as I wandered through the lea
I felt for just a fleeting moment that I was suddenly free of being lonely;
Then I closed my eyes and saw the very reason why.
I saw a man with his head bowed low
His heard had no place to go,
I looked and I thought to myself with a sigh:
There but for you go I.
I saw a man walking by the sea
Alone with the tide was he,
I looked and I thought as I watched him go by:
There but for you go I.
Lonely men around me trying not to cry;
Till the day you found me, there among them was I.
I saw a man who had never known a love that was all his own.
I thought as I thanked all the stars in the sky:
There but for you go I.
I saw a man with his head bowed low
His heard had no place to go,
I looked and I thought to myself with a sigh:
There but for you go I.
I saw a man walking by the sea
Alone with the tide was he,
I looked and I thought as I watched him go by:
There but for you go I.
Lonely men around me trying not to cry;
Till the day you found me, there among them was I.
I saw a man who had never known a love that was all his own.
I thought as I thanked all the stars in the sky:
There but for you go I.

Oh my gosh, such pure untouched by cigarettes and booze Sinatra! What a gorgeous song. Of course I love his music in later years as the cigs and booze added great depth and character but this lovely song just shows how perfect his voice was in youth. Thank you for sharing it.

James McEwan

Thanks for your comment - Cigarettes and booze no doubt had some influence on his voice but the real damage was a 1951 throat Haemorrhage from which damaged his vocal chords and changed his voice.

Such a beautiful song and sung by the master himself. The message of  this song is in part why I love it so.

Joanne Theodorou

Ah, how beautiful....why was this song dropped from the film version of "Brigadoon".? Anyone know? Such  wonderful sentiments expressed.
