Soulshine
Warren Haynes Lyrics


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

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

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

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

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

When you cant find the light
That guides you through a cloudy day
When the stars aint shinin bright
And you fill like youve lost youre way
When the candle lights 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 soul shine
Its better than sunshine
Its better than moonshine
Damn sure better than rain
Hey now people dont mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine till the break of day
I grew up thinkin that I had it made
Gonna make it on my own
But life can take the strongest man
And make him feel so alone
Now and then I feel a cold wind
Blowin through my achin bones
I think back to what my daddy said
He said Boy, in the darkness before the dawn
Let your soul shine
Its better than sunshine
Its better than moonshne
Damn sure better than rain
Yeah now people dont mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine till the break of day
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
And when your world seems cold
You got to let your spirit take control
Let your soul shine
Its better than sunshine
Its better than moonshne
Damn sure better than rain
Lord now people dont mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine till the break of day
Oh, its better than sunshine
Its better than moonshne
Damn sure better than rain
Yeah now people dont mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine till the break of day

warren is from my town, asheville, north carolina. he does so much for this area. he works with habitat for humanity building houses for low income people. every year at christmas he has the warren haynes christmas jam. the concert is phenomenal. it's gotten to where big names ask HIM if they can play. he also has local bands. it almost always starts at 7pm and they'll play 'til 4am. every year it's quite a show.
we're all proud of him. I've been to 5 of the concerts, my brothers 7. what's cool is he'll get on stage and people who went to school with him will holler up and he'll get the biggest smile on his face, he's truly a great guy.
we all love warren here.

My family helped build homes for Habitat for Humanity in Mars Hill. I went there for years as we built a house for my aunt and cousins.

I have a tat of it over my heart that says SOULSHINE. This saved my life 10 years ago when I lost my mom. She died in my arms of cancer. I now am battling cancer and heart failure, still listening. God bless Warren and his family.

Sometimes life throws us things that make life very hard. I know we all have to go sometime, but we all can unite through the music. and great music will out live us all. I hope to meet everyone on the other side. Peace..

I hope and pray GOD wraps his arms around you and carries you through this tough battle and heals you to spend many more years spreading love and joy. Love how your SOULSHINES you have a beautiful soul. My dad and grandma both battled cancer and by the grace of GOD they’re both still here she’s 84 and he’s 56. Never give up and always let your SOULSHINE. Much Love and Prayer’s that you’re doing well GOD BLESS YOU and EVERYONE ELSE!!!

Stan Crawford
