Dolly Parton - Be There Lyrics




Troubled waters all around you
Waters deep and underground you
I will have my arms around you, have no fear
When them storms of life are raging
I'm your harbor ever-waiting
I'm your comfort and your safety
I will show you I'll be there

And when that road gets rough and rocky
Dark and steep, it will not stop me
I'm your chariot and you've got me to carry your case
I will lay me down beside you
I will hold and satisfy you
I will protect and love and guide you
Forever I'll be there

I'm gonna be there – if I have to walk there
Glad to say – all rocks to cross to you
I'm gonna be there – the rock of Gibraltar
But I'll be there
I'm gonna rock you – rock you like a cradle
I'm gonna hold you – hold you like a baby
I'm gonna love you – as much as I'm able
Bet your heart that I'll be there

I'm gonna be there – anything you ever wanted me
I'm gonna be there – even when you don't want me to be
I'm gonna be there – attending to love and care
I'm gonna be there – as God himself had sent me
I'll be there – to help you love yourself, project me
I'm gonna be there – and nothing can prevent me
I swear that I'll be there

I'm gonna be there – If I have to walk there
I'll be there – if I had this with a cross (yeah)
I'll be there – without even a cause
I don't care
I'll be there – to put you first
I'm gonna mend you – wherever it hurts
And I'll defend you – when worse comes to worst
I'll be there

I'm gonna be there – anything you ever wanted me
I'm gonna be there – even when you don't want me to be
I'm gonna be there – attending to love and care
I'm gonna be there – as God himself had sent me
I'll be there – to help you love yourself, project me
I'll be there – and nothing can prevent me
I swear that I'll be there

Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Cause I'll be there
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Cause I'll be there
Everything's gonna be alright
Cause I'll be there

    She's an 👼💕 this and Light of a Clear Blue Morning were my faves as a 9-10 yr old in the early 80s! Of her newer stuff, I love Travelin' Thru from "Transamerica". So upbeat, hopeful and gentle!

    When I first played this song when I bought the New Harvest First Gathering album, I was so pleased with the whole album I know every word and sound on this album, Playing these songs in f2016 I cannot believe just how good they still sound today. God Dolly's so good.

    Thanks Dolly for providing the soundtrack to my life.

  14. Wayne A White

    I find that this song has been on my mind so I had to come to the Well, I am not a religious person but when Dolly Parton sings an inspirational spiritual tune like this it makes you believe in something higher than self.
