Warren Haynes Soulshine

When you can’t find the light

That guides you through a cloudy day

When the stars ain’t shining bright

And it feels like you’ve lost your way

When those candle light of home

Burn so very far away

Well you got to let your soul shine

Just like my daddy used to say


He used to say the soulshine

It’s better than sunshine

It’s better than moonshine

Damn sure better than rain

Hey now people don’t mind

We all get this way sometimes

Got to let your soul shine

Shine ’til the break of day

I grew up thinkin’ that I had it made

Gonna make it on my own

Life can take the strongest man

And make him feel so alone

Now and then I feel a cold wind

Blowin’ through my aching bones

I think back to what my daddy said

He said, boy, in the darkness before the dawn


Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness

Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul

A woman too, god knows, she can feel like this

But hey, when your world seems cold

You got to let your spirit take control

[Chorus 2x]
