*******************

Shell and I wrote this song back in 1974 when we both lived in Germany and had a band over there. Shell passed away a few years ago and I thought I'd post this in his memory. He was heck of a singer and a great guy. RIP, Shell.

Although lines 2 & 4 rhyme, it's coincidental as no rhymes were intended.


If It Were Possible
© 1974 Shelby Dean Bowling / Alan D. David, BMI (revised 2017)

(v1)
There are no words to be found in Webster’s book
That can describe the love I feel
When you kiss me and tell me you love me
It’s a feeling that’s close to unreal
But perhaps if I use this example
Then possibly it might give you some idea
How your absence makes me feel so empty
And your nearness overwhelms my very soul

CHORUS
If it were possible for you to step into my body
Possess my feelings and emotions as your own
If it were possible for you to see you through my eyes
It might be possible for you to know how I love you

I’ve searched the pages of the greatest works of literature
And although written by the world’s most learned men
I fail to find one single line that’s more powerful
Than when you tell me I am yours and you are mine

CHORUS
If it were possible for you to step into my body
Possess my feelings and emotions as your own
If it were possible for you to see you through my eyes
It might be possible for you to know how I love you

Alan,

That was like stepping back into 1974! A classic Country sound that captures that era perfectly. Has an "early Kristofferson sound/feel" (Ray Price, too).

Good mix. Well sung. Enjoyed it.

I agree with Floyd about the Ray Price thing on this. It does remind me of early to mid 70's country. There are some beautiful chord/melody changes in this one. Sounds great! Thanks, Torrey

Alan,

This is the kind of song that`s so steeped in tradition it makes me think it must be a classic I somehow missed.
I enjoyed everything about this song!

This is a very cool song. Very different from your other songs. I agree with the others on the older country feel to the song. Very well done and super vocal

Hi Alan.

A beautiful song which, like Floyd says, is classic country.

A super choice of RTs all mixed to perfection, but for me the best thing is the vocal delivery. So very intimate and full of expression - very, very, professional.

You're producing some great stuff at the moment - looking forward to your next one!

Cheers, ROG.

Thank you, Floyd. Your comments are always music to my ears. And I hadn't thought about it but you're right - with a little adjustment, this would have a hint of those KK songs that Ray Price took to the top of the charts back in the early and mid 70s. Ray price is my all-time favorite sing - any and all genres. Best to you,

Alan

ROG,

You're costing me money, my friend! All my hats are now too small - need to buy newer, larger ones, thanks to your comments! Thank you so much! I'm devoting a little more time to music than what I had been recently. I'm beyond delighted you're enjoying some of them! Thanks again and wishing you the very best.

Alan

Stairway To Heaven intro!!!

There's been some great classic country posted lately

and this is certainly one.

This is smooth and elegant, fine vocals, especially the harmonies

solid write and mix, you got it down Alan

I just saw that it was a 1974 co-write (sounds great today)

Kenny

Now we know you've heard this one before, probably from us grin
But this really has similarities with:

Willy Nelson

We think that's a compliment (again).

Great song... It really has that 70s country feel - very Charlie Rich-esqe. Really enjoyed it.

Thank you, Kenny! Sure do appreciate those kind comments! And yeah, I went back and forth about using that opening because of the similarity you mentioned. But, why not?

Thanks again! Best to you,
