If Not For You – Bob Dylan/George Harrison

Bob Dylan and George Harrison became close friends recording and performing together in 1970 and 1971.

After work on Self Portrait was virtually completed, Dylan held more sessions at Columbia’s recording studios in the Columbia Studio Building at 49 East 52nd Street in New York, beginning May 1, 1970.[1][2] Held in Studio B, the first session was accompanied by George Harrison, bassist Charlie Daniels, and drummer Russ Kunkel.

I thought this was a beautiful expression by Bob Dylan about his friend George Harrison.

He was a giant, a great, great soul, with all the humanity, all the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the common sense of a man and compassion for people. He inspired love and had the strength of a hundred men. He was like the sun, the flowers and the moon and we shall miss him enormously. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him. ~Bob Dylan (George Harrison’s Obituary, 30 Nov 2001)

* If Not For You *
(Bob Dylan)

If not for you
Babe I couldn’t even find the door
I couldn’t even see the floor
I’d be sad and blue if not for you

If not for you
Babe the night would see me wide awake
The day would surely have to break
It would not be new if not for you

If not for you my sky would fall
Rain would gather too
Without your love I’d be nowhere at all
I’d be lost if not for you

If not for you
The winter would hold no spring
Couldn’t hear a robin sing
I just wouldn’t have a clue if not for you

If not for you my sky would fall
Rain would gather too
Without your love I’d be nowhere at all
I’d be lost if not for you

If not for you
The winter would hold no spring
Couldn’t hear a robin sing
I just wouldn’t have a clue if not for you

If not for you
