​Gonna Shine It On Again

This song is by Bill Anderson and appears on the album Bill (1973).

There's just no way to tie a river down no way to hold back the wind
Rrain is gonna fall where it wants to fall and like the sun I'm gonna shine it on again

The only life I've ever known is driftin' a little somethin' I've picked up from my dad
Watchin' the sunset from a town he'd never been was the only dream he ever had
I guess this way of life rubbed off on me 'cause when I stay in one place too long
I start to hear the strains of a distant melody
And I'm off to sing that old highway song
There's just no way...

Once I met a girl in Colorado and I thought for a chance I'd settled down
But just when I thought I would make it I was on the highway leadin' out of town
Cause wonderin' where that long road would take me
Has its own special brand of charm
And it doesn't matter how much I'd like to I can't stay too long in one pair of arms
There's just no way...
There's just no way...
