"You'll Accomp'ny Me"


A gypsy wind is blowing warm tonight The sky is starlit and the time is right And still you're tellin' me you have to go Before you leave there's something you should know Yeah something you should know babe I've seen you smiling in the summer sun I've seen your long hair flying when you run I've made my mind up that it's meant to be Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Out where the rivers meet the sounding sea You're high above me now, you're wild and free ah but Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Some people say that love's a losin' game You start with fire but you lose the flame The ashes smolder but the warmth's soon gone You end up cold and lonely on your own I'll take my chances babe I'll risk it all I'll win your love or I'll take the fall I've made my mind up girl it's meant to be Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me It's written down somewhere, it's got to be You're high above me flyin' wild and free Oh but someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Out where the rivers meet the sounding sea I feel it in my soul, it's meant to be Oh someday lady you'll accomp'ny me Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
