Thorazine Shuffle
(Warren Haynes, Matt Abts)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI) / Jake Henry Music (ASCAP)

Stand by to stand by
Ain’t no need to worry today
Thorazine shuffle make everything OK
I know how you feel
You say you need your highs and lows
But what if you could take your pain
And just let it go

Step right back and watch me now
I’ll show you how it’s done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done
And the damage is done

Time drags by
When you’re boring
Don’t care what you do care what you say
There comes a time
When you got to let the monster inside you
Let him come on out, come on out and play

Step right back and watch me now
I’ll show you how it’s done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done

Step right back and watch me now
I’ll show you how it’s done
Stay right here with me now
Till the damage is done
And the damage is done

Stand by to stand by
Ain’t no need to worry today
Thorazine shuffle make everything OK

(Warren Haynes)

When you can’t find the light
That got you through the cloudy days,
When the stars ain’t shinin’ bright,
You feel like you’ve lost your way,
When those candle lights of home,
Burn so very far away,
Well you got to let your soul shine,
Just like my daddy used to say.

He used to say soul shine,
It’s better than sunshine,
It’s better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Hey now people don’t mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Got to let your soul shine,
Shine ’till the break of day.

I grew up thinkin’ that I had it made,
Gonna make it on my own.
Life can take the strongest man,
Make him feel so alone.
Now and then I feel a cold wind,
Blowin’ through my achin’ bones,
I think back to what my daddy said,
He said “Boy, in the darkness before the dawn:”

Let your soul shine.
It’s better than sunshine,
It’s better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Yeah now people don’t mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine,
Shine ’till the break of day.

Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness,
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul.
A woman too, God knows, she can feel like this.
And when your little world seems cold,
You got to let your spirit take control.

Let you soul shine,
It’s better than sunshine,
It’s better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Lord now people don’t mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine, Shine till the break of day.

Oh, it’s better than sunshine,
It’s better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain
Yeah now people don’t mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine,
Shine ’till the break of day.

Mule
(Warren Haynes, Allen Woody, Matt Abts)
Buzzard Rock Music (BMI) / Woody Music (SESAC) / Jake Henry Music (ASCAP)

Say you try
But you just can’t help your self
Say you wanna feel special
Man wanna make you feel like everybody else
Take away your freedom
Strip away your pride
Say you know you weren’t born
With the blue blood son
So take your place in line

Where’s my mule?
Where’s my forty acres
Where’s my dream
Mr Emancipator
To live this way
I might as well meet my maker
Where’s my mule?
Where’s my mule?

I say trust me
But you say it’s too much bother
Yeah, the way the man try to beat you down
Make you wanna kill your brother
So go on and bust me
For what’s in my mason jar
Yeah, I owes my soul
To the company store
How I’m doing so far?

Where’s my mule?
Where’s my forty acres
Where’s my dream
Mr Emancipator
Live this way
Might as well meet my maker
Where’s my mule?
Where’s my mule?

Where’s my mule?
Where’s my forty acres
Where’s my dream
Mr Emancipator
Live this way
Might as well meet my maker
Where’s my, my, my, my, my, my mule?
