Shine A Light
Saw you stretched out in room ten o nine
With a smile on your face and a tear right in your eye
Oh, couldn't see to get a line on you, my sweet honey love
Berber jew'lry jangling down the street
Making bloodshot eyes at ev'ry woman that you meet
Could not seem to get a high on you, my sweet honey love

May the good Lord shine a light on you
Make every song (you sing) your favorite tune
May the good Lord shine a light on you
Warm like the evening sun

When you're drunk in the alley, baby, with your clothes all torn
And your late night friends leave you in the cold gray dawn
Just seemed too many flies on you, I just can't brush them off
Angels beating all their wings in time
With smiles on their faces and a gleam right in their eyes
Whoa, thought I heard one sigh for you
Come on up, come on up, now, come on up now

May the good Lord shine a light on you
Make every song you sing your favorite tune
May the good Lord shine a light on you
Warm like the evening sun

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards
