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
