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

We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine 'til 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.

Whether with the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule or just by himself with an acoustic guitar, Warren's talent always comes shinning through. Such a wonderful song!
