Soulshine Chords

by Warren Haynes

A#              F                    D#                         A#
When you can't find the light, that got you through the cloudy days,
A#                   F                    D#                   A#
When the stars ain't shinin' bright, you feel like you've lost you're way,
A#                 F              D#                A#
When those candle lights of home, burn so very far away,
A#                        F           Gm                        G#
Well you got to let your soul shine, just like my daddy used to say.
[ Tab from: ]
                A#                          F
He used to say soulshine, it's better than sunshine,
                  D#                               A#
It's better than moonshine, damn sure better than rain.
                A#                              F
Hey now people don't mind, we all get this way sometime,
                Gm          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 dawn:"


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