Yahweh Sunshine

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Loose In The City

 

Oooooh way oh way, na na na na na na na, yeah

 

Ooooh the times are changin' - Nothing ever stays the same, yeah, yeah

Ooooh the times are changin' - The bear and the eagle are to blame, yeah, yeah

You can’t tame a bear and you can’t chain an eagle down

And you can’t make a river flow upstream

And the dead don’t make no sound, no sound, no sound

 

By tomorrow I’m gonna be on the road again my friend

I can hear the wild birds callin' my name

I can hear the wild birds callin' me home

Doo do doot, do doot doot do doot - Doo do doot do doot doot do doot

Doo do doot do - Do doot doot do

 

John’s down by the river and he never sets foot in the city

At least not by the light of day

John’s down by the river

He never sets foot in the city

All he wants to do is get high and play - It feels safer that way

 

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine, fill my heart

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine help me do my part

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine light my day

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine light my way

 

You can feel the beat beneath the city street - poundin' in my head

Makin' me wish I'd never done the things I did

But by tomorrow I’ll be on the road again, my friend

I can hear the wild birds calling my name

I can hear the wild birds calling me home

Doo do doot, do doot doot do doot - Doo do doot do doot doot do doot

Doo do doot do – Na na na na na na na – yeah-o they’re callin’ me home

 

John’s down by the river – He never sets foot in the city

At least not by the light of day

John’s down by the river and he never sets foot in the city

All he wants to do is get high and play - It feels safer that way - Hey

 

Singin’ Yahweh sunshine, sunshine warm my bones

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine light my way home

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine, fill my heart

Yahweh sunshine, sunshine help me do my part

 

We’re singin’ Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh Yahweh

Wooooh
