If I Could've Been Lyrics


by . From Working.


Man
If I could've been
What I could've been
I could've been somethin'...

Woman
I wanted to be a writer...

Man
...a major-league baseball player...

Man
...own a little farm...

Man
If what I could be
Had been left to me
I would've been somethin'...

Woman
...but then I got married...

Man
...then the kids came along...

Man
...but then my dad took sick...

Man
A tower of strength
A center of power
At ten bucks an hour...

Woman
If I could've done what I could've done
I could've done big things
With some luck to do what I wanted to.
I would've done big things
Swam a few rivers,
Climbed a few hills,
Paid all my bills...

Woman and others
Now It's just dreams that I'm stuck with
And hell, that aint a lot to show
I haven't gone far from the starting line
But deep down inside where it counts I know...

Solo
I know I could've gone
Where I could've gone
I could've gone places

With leeway to go
Far as I could go
I would've gone places
To the
Front of the line,
The top of the tier,
A long way from here...

Way back then I had ambition
A lot of stamina and guts
I never took "no" for an answer
It was tougher to fight
All those if's, and's or but's...

All
All those If's and's or but's
But if I...

Man, Woman
Could've been
What I could've been
I could've been somethin'
If my destiny
Had been left to me
I would've been somethin

Another woman
IF they had just let me go
Where I was rarin' to go
When I was rarin' to go
Back then...

All
God only knows
What I could've been

Group 1
What I could've been

Group 4
I could've been somethin'

Group 3
I could've been somethin'

Group 2
The top of the tier

Group 1
What I could've been

Group 4
I could've been someone great

Group 3
I could've been someone

Group 2
The man of the year

Group 1
What I could've been

Group 4
I could've been someone somewhere special

Group 3
I could've gone somewhere

Group 2
A long way from here

Group 1
What I could've been
Oh, what I could've been-

Mike Dillard
Hey somebody,
Don'cha wanna hear
The story of my life.

All
The story of my life
