Who doesn't love this song?  Bill Nelson channels Jimi Hendrix with

Lyrics:


Crying to the sky...
Searching for a silver lining
Hoping that the clouds I'm climbing
Aren't hiding rain...

Nowhere left to go...
For every show now disappoints me...
Still the ghost of love lost haunts me
'til my dying day...

I could fly away...
Over this river of tears...
But I think I'll stay...
To face all my troubles
And fight like a man
I won't fear... love is near...

Crying to the sky...
Weeping like a silver fountain...
Praying on the holy mountain
That it won't rain...

I could say goodbye...
Follow the sun and the moon
But that would be a lie...
My heart's in your hand
And I'm leading a band
Full of blues... just for you...

Crying to the sky...
Searching for a silver lining
Hoping that the clouds I'm climbing
Aren't hiding rain...
