Shine It on Lyrics

Artist: David Allan Coe
Album: Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy/Once Upon a Time

By T. Jans and J. Barry

SHINE IT ON, MY MAN, FORGET YOUR TROUBLES IF YOU CAN,
I'LL HOLD YOU 'TILL THE DAWN, SHINE IT ON, SHINE IT ON
YOU'VE BEEN TOO LONG ON THE ROAD AND YOU'RE READY TO EXPLODE,
COME AND LIGHTEN UP YOUR LOAD, SHINE IT ON

WE HAD LOVE AND NOT MUCH MORE BUT DREAMS JUST FOR FREE
WE SURE GOT LOST THERE, DAD AND MOM AND ME
HE'D LET ME STEER ON STRAIGHT A WAYS AS WE DROVE FROM TOWN TO TOWN,
WE KNEW THAT DADDY'S GYPSY BLOOD WOULDN'T LET HIM SETTLE DOWN

THERE WERE TIMES HE'D SIT RIGHT DOWN, JUST PLAIN HANG HIS HEAD
BUT HE'D ALWAYS LIFT IT UP AND SMILE WHENEVER MAMA SAID,
SHINE IT ON, MY MAN, FORGET YOUR TROUBLES IF YOU CAN,
I'LL HOLD YOU 'TILL THE DAWN, SHINE IT ON, SHINE IT ON
YOU'VE BEEN TOO LONG ON THE ROAD AND YOU'RE READY TO EXPLODE,

PAPA'S GONE, BUT LORD, HIS BLOOD IS RUNNING THROUGH MY VEINS
MAMA'S GONE TO FIND HIM, SO SHE CAN'T EASE MY PAIN
ANOTHER WOMAN HOLDS ME NOW, IN A DIFFERENT WAY
NOW I KNOW WHY PAPA SMILED, WHEN HE HEARD MAMA SAY
