​If You Wouldn't Be My Lady

This song is by Charlie Rich and appears on the album Behind Closed Doors (1973).

Take away the song a songbird sings
Take away the sound that laughter brings
Take the music from a melody
Never take your love from me

You make me smile you make dark sighs turn into warm sunshine
You give me love, the Lord above knows

I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here today
I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here to stay

Take away the gentle summer breeze
Take away the golden autumn leaves
I can live without blue skies above
But I could never live without your love

You give me life you make bad times turn into the good times
You give me love, the Lord above knows

I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here to stay
I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here to stay

I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here today
I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
