"I Will Be There" is a song featured on Northern Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison's sixth album Saint Dominic's Preview (1972). The song is also the B-side to Morrison's single "Warm Love", released in 1973. It is one of few overtly jazz songs written by Morrison, and the first since the release of "Moondance" in 1970.
The song is led in by Tom Salisbury's piano, who also arranged the song. Featured in the song is a saxophone solo from long serving Jack Schroer. John Collis says, "A hero (of Van), is evoked by the piano-led blues "I Will Be There" -the spirit of Ray Charles looms large in the song." The Rolling Stone review of Saint Dominic's Preview remarks: "'I Will Be There' goes the furthest of any (of the songs in Saint Dominic's Preview) into R&B-jazz roots, as Van pays expert musical tribute to Count Basie and Joe Williams."

 St George's was built for use as a church in the Clifton area of Bristol, England, between 1821 and 1823 by the architect Sir Robert Smirke, who designed it in the Greek Revival style. It was a "Waterloo church", the only one in Bristol to receive government money from the first grant under the Church Building Act of 1818.
