Alison Kraus Song Lyrics: “I Will”

Today, I was listening to a CD a friend of mine gave me some time ago and Kraus’ version of this old Beatles song was on it. This is one of those songs that has always touched me, so I decided to post the lyrics. I intend to add my own version to my Americana show. The chords and lyrics are posted in several places on the Web. Tonight, I’m at my hotel near Tyler, getting ready for a very full week of school programs with the Brownsboro, TX ISD.

“I Will”

Who knows how long I’ve loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime?
If you want me to–I will.

You know if I ever saw you
I didn’t catch your name
But it never really mattered
I will always feel the same.

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we’re together
Love you when we’re apart.

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear me to you
Ah [or “how”], you know I will
I will.
