"To Sing For You" as written by and Donovan Leitch....
When you're feeling kind of lonesome in your mind
With a heartache followin' you so close behind
Call out to me as I ramble by.
I'll sing a song for you,
That's what I'm here to do,
To sing for you.
When the night has left you cold and feeling sad,
I will show you that it cannot be so bad.
Forget the one who went and made you cry.
I'll sing a song for you,
That's what I'm here to do,
To sing for you.
When you feel you just can't make it anymore,
With your head bowed down you're staring at the floor,
Search out to me with your weary eyes.
I'll sing a song for you,
That's what I'm here to do,
To sing for you.
Now every man he has his work, you know,
And to find out mine, you ain't got far to go.
Call out to me with your weary eyes.
I'll sing a song for you,
That's what I'm here to do,
To sing for you.
To sing for you.

    General CommentThis is a really sweet love song. His girlfriend or crush is having a hard time dealing with life and maybe memories of a guy that broke her heart. He thinks that if he sings to her that will take all her pain away. Sooo sweet! I love donovan

    General CommentWhen Donovan met Dylan, Donovan had just written this song and played it to Dylan, who in turn had just written 'Baby Blue' and played it to Donovan. Many saw this as some sort of 'victory' for Dylan but they are totaly different people and songwriters and this is a great example of that difference.
