Ricky Skaggs – I Wouldn’t Change You If I Could, is a song originally recorded by country singer Jim Eanes in 1959 and credited to himself as songwriter. It was later more successfully recorded by American country music artist Ricky Skaggs. It was released in January 1983 as the second single from the album Highways & Heartaches. The song was Skaggs’ fourth #1 on the country chart. The single stayed at #1 for one week and spent a total of 12 weeks on the country chart.
The song was actually written by Arthur Q. Smith and purportedly sold to Eanes, as Smith had sold him many of his songs. Smith also sold a 1/2 share of the song to Paul H. Jones, and retained the other half. When Skaggs’ recording came out it was initially credited to Eanes, but once it became a hit, Smith’s widow, Lillian Pritchett, sued the publisher. As Eanes couldn’t show proof he had purchased the song, the song credits were transferred out of Eanes’ name over to Smith’s estate and Jones. Eanes went to his grave attesting that he actually wrote the song.

Ricky Skaggs – I Wouldn’t Change You If I Could lyrics

I wouldn’t change a single thing about you if I could
The way you are just suits me too a tee
A princess in a storybook
A king upon his throne
That’s what we are and you belong too me
I wouldn’t change you if I could
I love you as you are
You’re all that I would wish for
If I wished upon a star
An angel sent from heaven
You’re everything that’s good
You’re perfect just the way you are
I wouldn’t change you if I could
Your eyes your lips, your tender smile
I’d leave them as they are
And come what may I’d never change a thing
And if I were a potter
And you a piece of clay
The only thing I’d change would be your name
I wouldn’t change you if I could
I love you as you are
You’re all that I would wish for
If I wished upon a star
An angel sent from heaven
You’re everything that’s good
You’re perfect just the way you are
I wouldn’t change you if I could…
