Bill Anderson – Gonna Shine It On Again lyrics

There's just no way to tie a river down
No way to hold back the wind
Rain is gonna fall where it wants to fall
And like the sun I'm gonna shine it on again

The only life I've ever known is driftin' a little
Somethin' I've picked up from my dad
Watchin' the sunset from a town he'd never been
Was the only dream he ever had

I guess this way of life rubbed off on me
'Cause when I stay in one place too long
I start to hear the strains of a distant melody
And I'm off to sing that old highway song

There's just no way to tie a river down
No way to hold back the wind
Rain is gonna fall where it wants to fall
And like the sun I'm gonna shine it on again

Once I met a girl in Colorado
And I thought for a chance I'd settled down
But just when I thought I would make it
I was on the highway leadin' out of town

'Cause wonderin' where that long road would take me
Has its own special brand of charm
And it doesn't matter how much I'd like to
I can't stay too long in one pair of arms

There's just no way [unverified]
There's just no way [unverified]
