Ricky Skaggs – Can't Control The Wind lyrics

Can't control the wind
(Bill Anderson - Roger Pirtle - Pat Lovely)
" © '95 Mr Bubba Music "

When I was a boy daddy was my guiding light
We'd take walks and talk about fishing girls and life
He'd help me with my homework cheer me up when I was down
Best friend that I ever had I miss havin' him around
He'd say do the very best you can with all that you've been blessed
And if the load's too great for you the Lord will do the rest
Keep one thing in mind if all else should fail
You can't control the wind but you can adjust the sail
Daddy lost his job when the factory closed
Times were hard bills to pay he was troubled and it showed
But he said son don't worry it's all to no avail
We can't control the wind but we can adjust the sail
I think of his advice when life turns it's back on me
There is no mountain I can't climb if I start down on my knees
I'll do the very best I can with all that I've been blessed
And if the load's too great for me the Lord will do the rest
I'll keep one thing in mind if all else should fail
I can't control the wind but I can adjust the sail
No I can't control the wind but I can adjust the sail
