I remember what Ray Charles said, in his softest southern accent
I remember what Ray Charles said, just before he went to bed
And he would sing for us again
The song for all the lonely men
The sweetest tune you’ve ever heard
Comes from the soul without a word
And someone else has made their choice
The nightingale got back his voice
Now I know how Johnny Cash felt, in the wilderness in Tulsa
Now I know how Johnny Cash felt, just before he went to bed
And he would sing for us again
The song for all the lonely men
The sweetest tune you’ve ever heard
Comes from the soul without a word
And someone else has made their choice
The nightingale got back his voice
And he would sing for us again
The song for all the lonely men
And he would sing for evermore
The song for all who were unsure
The sweetest tune you’ve ever heard
Comes from the soul without a word
And someone else has made their choice
The nightingale got back his voice.....
