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. 

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.

Wasn't Government Mule the name of Jason Newsted from Metallica's band?

One of the best bands on the planet right now. Led by Warren Haynes of the Allman Bros and now The Dead. Check them out!!!!!!!

That is sad to even think about Jason Newstead and Warren Haynes in the same sentence, just tragic, newstead and metallica are just about the worst band i have ever known
