Soulshine (acoustic)

capo on 3rd fret
h= hammer
s= slide

beginning (play twice)



Verse 1
G              D                            C                           G
When you can't find the light          That guides you through a cloudy day

G                     D                         C                          G
When the stars aren't shining bright    And you feel like you've lost your way

G                 D                      C            G
When those candle lights at home         Burn so very far away

G                        D                Em                 F
Well you got to let your soulshine       Just like my daddy used to say

F           G
Used to say soulshine

G                D
It's better than sunshine

D                C
It's better than moonshine

C                     G
Damn sure better than rain

Hey now people don't mind

G                D
We all feel this way sometimes

D                   Em
You got to let your soulshine

F              G
Shine till the break of day

Verse 2  (chords same as verse 1)

I grew up thinking that I had it made gonna make it on my own
Life can take the strongest man and make him feel so alone
Now and then I feel a cold wind blowing through my aching bones
I just think back to what my daddy says he said boy in this darkness before the cold

Chorus  (chords same as chorus 1)

E                   C
Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness

C                                    G
Like a woman has robbed his mother's very soul

Bm                            C
A woman too god knows she can feel like this

And when your world seems cold

F          D
You got to let your spirit take control

I would add a 'C' in the verses, between the end of one line and the beginning of the next:

When you can't find the light That guides you through a cloudy day

Where the second C is just two strums (up, down), then an open strum and a down strum on the next G.

Here is a great video of him playing the song live and acoustic. It's very clear as to what his finger position throughout the song is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCD_UmsmtSg

The first chord in the bridge should be Em.

In the lyrics in the bridge, line 2, should be 'like a woman has robbed him of his very soul', not his mother's very soul.
