If I Had The World To Give Lyrics: Robert Hunter Music: Jerry Garcia Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission. If I had the world to give I'd give it to you, long as you live Would you let it fall Or hold it in your arms? If I had a song to sing I'd sing it to you, long as you live Lullaby Or maybe a plain serenade Wouldn't you laugh, dance and cry or be afraid At the change you made? I may not have the world to give to you But maybe I have a tune or two Only if you let me be your world Could I ever give this world to you Could I ever give this world to you But I will give what love I have to give I will give what love I have to give I will give what love I have to give Long as I live If I had a star to give I'd give it to you, long as you live Would you have the time To watch it shine, watch it shine? Or ask for the moon and heaven too? I'd give it to you Well maybe I've got no star to spare Or anything fine or even rare Only if you let me be your world Could I ever give this world to you Could I ever give this world to you

Diane Hesser writes: Hello, I'm getting married on 8/13/05 and was hoping you could help me out. Is there any particular meaning behind "If I Had the World To Give " that I may have missed ? We are having a Grateful Dead cover band play our wedding and was wondering if you thought that this song would be appropriate for me to dance with my father to. We would love to hear suggestions on a Dead tune for the father / mother dance too. Thanks !

Had my dad been at my wedding, that was the song we would have danced to.

Paul Keniston writes: That's Beautiful ! Somewhere in a box in the house is a video of me singing this song to my newborn daughter some fifteen years ago. I couldn't hit the high notes but she just kept smiling at me and drooling all the same. So even before reading your post this song has been THE Song of the love of this father for his daughter. I hope she lets me dance to it with her at her wedding. It will mark the transition from letting your Dad "be your world" to letting your new hubby "be your world." May your world always be full of love and light and joy ( and perhaps the moon and heaven too ! )
