The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – It'll Shine When It Shines lyrics

(GUITAR INTRO)

The old cat on the roof

He could stand a little push

'cause he's got nine good lives to live

But like my momma said

You only live till you're dead

And you got to give and give and give



There's a pebble in the pond

Goin' on and on,

Makin' waves and tides and ripples and rings

There's a leaf in the wind

That don't know where to end

Chasin' days and ways and wishes and dreams



Seems like ev'ry one

Is out lookin' for the sun

Singin' rain and pain on he who hesitates

But it'll shine when it shines

You might think I'm wastin' time

But I'm just a good old boy that's learned to wait



Whippoorwill's in the dawn

Pretty soon, he'll be gone

And he's got one good song to sing

But like my daddy said,

It's in your heart, not your head

And you got to sing and sing and sing



There's a window in the wall

Lookin' out on it all

Leavin' fears and tears and troubles alone

There's a fire in the stove

Keepin' out the cold,

Warmin' wine and winters and babies and homes



Seems like ev'ry one

Is out lookin' for the sun

Singin' rain and pain on he who hesitates

But it'll shine when it shines

You might think I'm wastin' time

But I'm just a good old boy that's learned to wait



Yes, I'm just a good old boy that's learned to wait
