1.
Selma in the summer. Wish You Were Here
  This heat is driving me nuts
  Sticky and still, can’t sleep at night, Wish You Were Here
  Too much noise from all the bugs
 
chorus I want to leave. I want to leave
  Things are finally coming clear
  Darling, oh darling, instead of me
  Oh, I Wish You Were Here
   
2.
Winter in Wisconsin. Wish You Were Here
  Icy wind screams through the trees
  Shaking, and shivering, can’t sleep at night, Wish You Were Here
  Feeling like my breath will freeze (Listening to the forest freeze)
 
chorus I want to leave. I want to leave
  If this snow would only clear
  Darling, oh darling, instead of me, instead of me,
  Oh, I Wish You Were Here
 
bridge What you put me through has got me feeling worse than blue
  I just had to up and go somewhere
  Now I so alone and I want to be back home
  And I could, and I would, but you're still there
   
3.
Huddled in a deep hole. Wish You Were Here
  This pit of sorrow and despair
  Broken and blinded, there’s no way out
  There’s no ladder, and there’s no stair
   
chorus I want to leave. I want to leave. I want to leave
  Allow me please to make this clear
  Darling, oh darling, instead of me, instead of me
  Oh, I Wish You Were Here
 
  (instrumental break)
 
chorus

You’ll finally see. You'll finally see

  I’ll make it home, and let’s be clear
  Darling, oh darling, instead of me, instead of me
  How I Wish You Were Here
   
coda Believe me when I tell you, I'm wishing I were home and oh
  How I Wish You Were Here
  I Wish You Were Here

Full-length Demo / Rough
 

 
 
 

"I started writing Wish You Were Here in April, 2012, when I was in a funk and thought writing a funny song about it would help. It did. I ran it by Al "Doc" Mehl who set it to music, and together we revised it. " — San

 

Al "Doc" Mehl performed it with Washtub Jerry in the Friday Night Opry at the Western Music Association Annual Festival, Nov. 15, 2014, in Albuquerque NM.
