Intro: G    D    Em   F (x2)

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

[Chorus]
                G                           D Dsus4 D
He used to say soulshine, it's better than sunshine,
                  C                                G  G6 G
It's better than moonshine, damn sure better than rain.
                G                               D
Hey now people don't mind, we all get this way sometime,
                Em           F                      G G6 G
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:"

[Chorus]

Em                   C
Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness,
                                         G
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul.
  Bm                             C
A woman too, God knows, she can feel like this.
                F                                      D Dsus4 D
And when your world seems cold, you got to let your spirit take control.

[Chorus]
