Collin Raye – If You Get There Before I Do lyrics

I read a note my grandma wrote back in 1923
Grandpa kept it in his coat and he showed it once to me
He said, “Boy, you might not understand but a long, long time ago
Grandmas daddy didnt like me none but I loved your grandma so”

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
Get married in the first town we came to and live forever
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead
I found this letter and this is what it said

If you get there before I do, don’t give up on me
Ill meet you when my chores are through
I dont know how long Ill be but Im not gonna let you down
Darling, wait and see

And between now and then til I see you again
Ill be loving you, love me

I read those words just hours before my grandma pa**ed away
In the doorway of a church where me and grandpa stopped to pray
I know Id never seen him cry in all my 15 years
But as he said these words to her, his eyes filled up with tears

If you get there before I do, don’t give up on me
Ill meet you when my chores are through
I dont know how long Ill be but Im not gonna let you down
Darling, wait and see

And between now and then til I see you again
Ill be loving you, love me
Between now and then til I see you again
Ill be loving you, love me
