standby lyrics – jim reeves

i’m just a standby
standby in your heart
i’m just a standby
never played a leading part.

i’m just an extra
and extra on your list
and if i left you
i never would be missed.

i’m going somewhere
somewwhere far away
be going a long time
i might even stay.

the open road is calling me
i’ll find a home on the rolling sea
i’ll find the love where i will be.

more than a standby
standby in your heart
won’t be a standby
i’ll play the leading part

i’m going somewhere
somewwhere far away
be going a long time
i might even stay…
