When I awoke this mornin',  something inside of me   told me this would be my day
D                                   Em                             F#m          Em                     D
 I heard the morning train, I felt the wind change,  too many times I'm on my way.

    Come on sunshine,   what can you show me.
G                           D              E                  Asus  A7
    Where can you take me to make me understand.
G                        D           G                  D
    The wind can shake me,     brothers forsake me.
G                      D                   E                   Asus4      A7
    The rain can touch me, but can I touch the rain.

D                                     Em                          F#m   Em             D
And then I saw the sunrise above the cotton sky like a candycane delight.
I saw the milkman, I saw the business man, I saw the only road in sight.
Then I got to thinkin' what makes a man want to go, to know the wherefore and the why.
Too many times now, oh Lord I can't remember if it's September or July.
Come on sunshine, what can you show me.
Where can you take me to make me understand.
The wind can shake me, brothers forsake me.
The rain can touch me, but can I touch the rain.

Then all at once it came to me, I saw the wherefore, and you can see it if you try.
It's in the sun above, it's in the one you love, but these will never tell you why.
Come on sunshine, what can you show me.
Where can you take me to make me understand.
The wind can shake me, brothers forsake me.
G                  D                   E                   Asus4                                              A7
The rain can touch me, but can I touch the rain.    So much to lose, so much to gain
