"Shambala" as written by and Daniel Joseph Moore....
Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain
With the rain in Shambala
Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame
With the rain in Shambala

[Chorus]
Ah, ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Everyone is helpful, everyone is kind
On the road to Shambala
Everyone is lucky, everyone is so kind
On the road to Shambala

[Chorus]

How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala

I can tell my sister by the flowers in her eyes
On the road to Shambala
I can tell my brother by the flowers in her eyes
On the road to Shambala

[Chorus]

How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala

    General CommentShambala is a paradise kingdom in buddist religion. However, shambala might not be a place, but a spiritual mindset

    Song MeaningThe song is about the mythical kingdom of Shambhala, said to be hidden somewhere within or beyond the peaks of the Himalayas and mentioned in various ancient texts, including the Kalachakra Tantra and ancient texts of Tibetan Buddhism

    General CommentThis song was written by Daniel Moore, who also wrote the classic My Maria. In addition to the Three Dog Night version. B.W. Stephenson did a very rousing version of this song.

    Oh, and it is about being under the influence of Marijuana.
