Let Me Be There

Let Me Be There was written by John Rostill and was first recorded by Olivia Newton-John in 1973 on her album of the same name. She was already established in the country music setting, but with the release of the 1978 movie Grease, her recorded music exploded into popularity and resurfaced to set record hits. While Let Me Be There occupied the US hits chart for a few weeks in 1973, it was a popular hit in the Top 20 for five years after the release of Grease. Once again, this is one of my favorite songs from my middle school years, 1977-78-79.

LET ME BE THERE – OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN

Wherever you [C]go, [C7]wherever you may [F]wander in your [C]life.

Surely you know, I always wanna [G7]be there

Holding your [C]hand, [C7]and standing by to [F]catch you, when you [C]fall

Seeing you through – – [G7]in everything you [C]do.

CHORUS

Let me [C]be there in your [C7]morning,

Let me [F]be there in your night,

Let me [C]change whatever’s wrong,

And make it [Dm]right. (make it [G7]right)

Let me [C]take you through that [C7]wonderland

that [F]only two can share,

All I [C]ask you-oo-oo[G7]OO……. is let me be [C]there.

Watching you [C]grow, [C7] and going through the [F]changes in your [C]life

That’s how I [C]know, I always wanna [G7]be there

Whenever you [C]feel, [C7] you need a friend to [F]lean on, here I [C]am

Whenever you call – – [G7]you know I’ll be [C]there.

CHORUS

Let me [C]be there in your [C7]morning,

Let me [F]be there in your night,

Let me [C]change whatever’s wrong,

And make it [Dm]right. (make it [G7]right)

Let me [C]take you through that [C7]wonderland

that [F]only two can share,

All I [C]ask you-oo-oo[G7]OO……. is let me be [C]there.

KEY CHANGE: D

Let me [D]be there in your [D7]morning,

Let me [G]be there in your night,

Let me [D]change whatever’s wrong,

And make it [Em]right. (make it [A7]right)

Let me [D]take you through that [D7]wonderland

that [G]only two can share,

All I [D]ask you-oo-oo[A7]OO……. is let me be [D]there [G]

All I [D]ask you-oo-oo[A7]OO……. is let me be [D]there.
