(Rostill)

 

Information:
Let Me Be There was written by John Rostill and recorded by Olivia Newton-John in 1973. Her recording (MCA 40101) sold over a million copies and won a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal. The song peaked at #6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

 

Elvis sang Let Me Be There quite often in concert in the mid-1970s. The version first released on record was from the March 20, 1974, performance in Memphis.

 

Lyrics:
 

Wherever you go, where ever you may wander in your life
Well surely you know, I always wanna be there
Holding your hand and standing by to catch you when you fall
Seeing you through in everything you do

1. I said let me be there in your morning, let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
Let me take you to that wonderland that only two can share
All I ask you is let me be there

Watching you grow and going through the changes in your life
That's how I know I always wanna to be there
Whenever you feel you need a friend to lean on, here I am
Whenever you call, you know I'll be there

1. 1. (Repeat)
All I ask you is let me be there


1. (Repeat)

All I ask you is let me be there
