SUNSHINE

 

campfire protest song written during the WTO protests in DC - had to lay a banjo in for that wandering feel,  for a little of that sourness in the back of your throat

Sunshine


When will the sun shine on everyone

The same as falls the rain

When will the sun shine on everyone the same


Took a trip to Washington to wander through those halls

raised my voice a time or two it still seemed kind of small

Saw a stature of Lincoln there carved in marble white

and the names of men who died

doing what they were told was right


When will the sun shine on everyone

The same as falls the rain

When will the sun shine on everyone the same


And as I walked some rain did fall onto those steaming grates

and trickled down the avenues and spilled upon my plate

Soaked right through the blanket I was using to stay dry

Pelted down on those who passed me by


When will the sun shine on everyone

The same as falls the rain

When will the sun shine on everyone the same


There's fields out in Arlington where crosses bloom in white

and the tombs of the Kennedy's are blazing in the night

Somedays the sun does shine somedays the rain does fall

Rain or shine it falls on one and all


When will the sun shine on everyone

The same as falls the rain

When will the sun shine on everyone the same

When will the sun shine on everyone

The same as falls the rain

When will the sun shine on everyone the same
