"There But for You Go I" is a song Frank Sinatra recorded under Columbia Records. It was released in 1947 with his rendition of another Lerner/Loewe song, "Almost Like Being in Love." The A-side charted at #20, but this song did not chart at all.[1]

Lyrics Edit

This is hard to say, but as I wandered though the lea,
I felt for just a fleeting moment that I suddenly was free
Of being lonely that I close my eyes
And saw the very reason why.

I saw a man with his head bowed low,
His heart 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.
