Lyrics


If I’d never had a thirst for another’s well.

If my throat had never dried and my strength had never failed.

On a hot summer night with a full moon rise.

I’d have never gone astray if it wasn’t for the sky.

If it wasn’t for the train that came a-tickin’ down the track.

The one that took you away — the one that ain’t coming back.

If it wasn’t for the whistle singing soft and low,

I could still hear you say that you never would go.

If it wasn’t for the sky, oh, the sky.

You would never have learned to fly.

If it wasn’t for the sky, oh, my eyes.

I would never have learned to cry.

Don’t you let the sky fall down on me.

Don’t you let the sky fall down on me.

Don’t you let the sky fall down on me.

Don’t you let the sky fall down on me.

If it weren’t for the rain fallin’ down on me.

If it weren’t for the leaves blowin’ all around me.

If it weren’t for my sorrow, I wouldn’t be here today.

And if it weren’t for the sky, I wouldn’t feel this way.

If it weren’t for the sky, oh, the sky.

You would never have learned to fly.

If it weren’t for the sky, oh, my eyes.

I would never have learned to cry.

Don’t you let the sky fall down on me.

Don’t you let the sky fall down on me.

Don’t you let the sky fall down on me.

Don’t you let the sky fall.

You let the sky fall down on me.
