If We Had a Child

This song is by Kasey Chambers and Keith Urban and appears on the album Dragonfly (2017) by Kasey Chambers.

If we had a child
People would come from far and near
Even strangers who never knew ya
They'd be singing hallelujah
If we had a boy (if we had a boy)
We could give him a family name
He'd be sweeter than sugar cane
He'd be braver than Jesse James

We could raise him right
Down where the river end meets the sea
I would right that baby boy while I hold him close
Till they bury his bones and he marries someone like me

If we had a child (if we had a child)
It would be the talk of the town
Ain't nobody ever gonna believe ya
Everybody come and gather round
If we had a girl (if we had a girl)
She could make a sunshine through the rain
She could make a fire without a flame
Not even doctors could explain

We could raise her right
Down where the rivers is running through
I would right that baby girl forever and a day
Till they take us away and she marries someone like you

I'm gonna fight for who loves you most
(I'm gonna fight for who loves you most)
For the father, the son, and the holy ghost
(Father, son, and the holy ghost)
We got a world that's best for both
'Cause there ain't nobody
(Ain't nobody)
That's gonna love you like me
(Ain't nobody's gonna love you like me)

If we had a child
People would come from far and near
Even strangers that never knew ya
They'd be singing hallelujah
Hallelujah
(Hallelujah)
(Hallelujah, hallelujah they'd be singing)
(If we had a child)
