IF WISHES WERE HORSES
by James Hill

[INTRO]
B B E E A A
E E C#m C#m A A B B E E

[VERSE]
E E A A
It was already August,
B B E E
The first blush of autumn
C#m C#m A A E E
In the cheeks of the maple and ash
E E A A
I was so busy mindin'
B B E E C#m C#m
My business that I didn't see her
A A E E
'til she asked me to dance

[VERSE]
E E A A
Now I don't like my chances
B B E E C#m C#m
Of puttin' her beauty in words
A A E E
But I'll give it a try:
E E B B
Her eyes were as blue as
E E A A
A A Hank Williams song
C#m C#m
And her voice is like
B B E E
an old lullaby

[CHORUS]
B B
If wishes were horses
E E
we'd ride together
A A E E B B
Chasing the wind 'cross the plains
C#m C#m B B E E
If longing was midsummer rain
A A E E
I'd turn the canyons
C#m C#m B B E E A A E E
Into deep rivers again

[VERSE]
E E A A
The dancefloor was hot
B B E E
As greenhouse in June
C#m C#m A A E E
And the band swung like a trapeze
E E A A
And I held her as close
B B E E C#m C#m
As I dare to then spun her around
A A E E
Like a leaf in the breeze

[VERSE]
E E A A
One song, one dance
B B E E
Sometimes you only get
C#m C#m A A E E
One chance to let you love show
E E B B
And I still can't explain
E E A A
Why I hid mine away
C#m C#m B B E E
Like a daffodil under the snow

[CHORUS]
B B
If wishes were horses
E E
we'd ride together
A A E E B B
Chasing the wind 'cross the plains
C#m C#m B B E E
If longing was midsummer rain
A A E E
I'd turn the canyons
C#m C#m B B E E A A E E A A
Into deep rivers again

[INSTRUMENTAL]
E E A A B B E E
C#m C#m A A E E
E E A A B B E E
C#m C#m A A E E

[VERSE]
E E A A
No whiskey, no gin
E E A A
No trouble I'm in
C#m C#m A A E E
Can chase her out of my mind
E E B B
Where do you go
E E A A
When time passes slow
C#m C#m B B E E
And love has left you behind?

[DOUBLE CHORUS]
B B
If wishes were horses
E E
we'd ride together
A A E E B B
Chasing the wind 'cross the plains
C#m C#m B B E E
If longing was midsummer rain
A A E E
I'd turn the canyons
C#m C#m B B E E
Into deep rivers again
B B
If wishes were horses
E E
we'd ride together
A A E E B B
Chasing the wind 'cross the plains
C#m C#m B B E E
If longing was midsummer rain
A A E E
I'd turn the canyons
C#m C#m B B E E A A E E Aadd9 Aadd9
Into deep rivers again
