A              E               D                         Bb
When you can't find the light, that got you through the cloudy days,
A                    E                    D                    A
When the stars ain't shinin' bright, you feel like you've lost you're way,
A                 E               D                A
When those candle lights of home, burn so very far away,
A                         E           F#                        G
Well you got to let your soul shine, just like my daddy used to say.

                A                           E
He used to say soulshine, it's better than sunshine,
                  D                                A
It's better than moonshine, damn sure better than rain.
                A                            E
Hey now people don't mind, we all get this way sometime,
               F#           G                        A
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.

Life can take the strongest man, 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 


F#                   D
Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness,
       D                                A
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul.
  D Minor                             D
A woman too, God knows, she can feel like this.
G                                          E
And when your world seems cold, you got to let your spirit take control.
