I BELIEVE IN YOU, GIRL [3] (Ron Griffiths)
[Iveys demo from "Someday We'll Be Known" bootleg CD (version 1 of 2) - recorded 1967 - released 1995]

Everybody gather 'round (and on me)
Everybody gather 'round (it's not her)
Everybody gather 'round
Sit down on the ground
And listen to my song...

(I believe) someday that you'll be mine
I just can't wait till then
(I believe) it isn't very far away
It's up to you, you must see when
(I believe) in oh, so many, many things
Rabbits foots and good luck charms
(I believe) in your sweet, sweet love
When you got me in your arms

I believe in you, girl, believe me
I believe in you, girl, c'mon now
I believe in you, girl, you see me
I believe in you, girl, believe me

[guitar solo]

(One fine day) we'll find some time together
I hope that we'll get wed
(Till I see) I'll just keep up my faith in you
You know girl, what I've said

I believe in you, girl, believe me
I believe in you, girl, c'mon now
I believe in you, girl, you see me
I believe in you, girl

(I believe) yeah
(I believe) baby
(I believe) girl

I believe in you, girl, believe me
I believe in you.
