Wherefore & Why Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When I woke this mornin', something inside of me
Told me this would be my day
I heard the mornin' train, I felt the wind change
Too many times I'm on my way

Come on sunshine, what can you show me
Where can you take me to make me understand
The wind can shake me, brothers, forsake me
The rain can touch me but can I touch the rain

Then I saw the sunrise above the cotton sky
Like a candy cane delight
I saw the milkman, I saw the business man
I saw the only road in sight

Then I got to thinkin' what makes you want to go
To know the wherefore and the why
So many times now, oh Lord, I can't remember
If it's September or July

Come on sunshine, what can you show me
Where can you take me to make me understand
The wind can shake me, brothers, forsake me
The rain can touch me but can I touch the rain

Then all at once it came to me, I saw the wherefore
And you can see it if you try
It's in the sun above, it's in the one you love
You'll never know the reason why

Come on sunshine, what can you show me
Where can you take me to make me understand
The wind can shake me, brothers, forsake me
The rain can touch me but can I touch the rain
So much to lose, so much to gain
