I Know Why The Sun Shines – feat. Leland Sklar and Pedro Segundo

It’s the right time to play this song… with the incredible Leland Sklar & Pedro Segundo.. it fills & breaks my heart to play it again, and reminds me of the first time we performed it together just like this..on a tour bus long ago in another life! J🙏💕

 

Original recording on “Somebody’s Child” album.
I KNOW WHY THE SUN SHINES
words & music by Judith Owen

Fish swim and bird’s gotta fly
and sometimes I just have to try to
make sense of all that we’re doing
to hold on to all that we’re losing
and sometimes, I just want to cry ’cause
I know, oh I know
I know why the sun shines

oil man, please, tell me what are you doing
come clean, I mean, who are you fooling
you don’t care if you break what you borrow
you don’t care if your children have tomorrow
and sometimes, I just want to cry ’cause
I know, oh I know
I know why the sun shines

So fish swim and bird’s gotta fly
and we’ll learn when this heaven’s passed us by so
dig deep, & poison this precious place
’cause when we’re gone
something good & green will rise in our space
sometimes, I just want to cry ’cause
I know, oh I know
I know why the sun shines
