Don Williams - I Sing For Joy lyrics

(Gary Burr / Doug Johnson)

When I was younger, the hunger came calling
And humbly I answered each rising and falling
I will not surrender at this wiser and tender age
I turn the page.

Chorus:
And I sing for Joy
For the smile that it brings, from the heart
Through these guitar strings
It was only noise, till her love put a song
In the soul of this good ole boy
I sing for Joy.

When I was lonely, my angel found me
She sweetly and gently wrapped her arms around me
And the demons that chased me, gave up and faded away
Now I can sing.

Chorus:
And I sing for Joy
For the smile that it brings, from the heart
Through these guitar strings
It was only noise, till her love put a song
In the soul of this good ole boy
I sing for Joy.

--- Instrumental ---

Who could come nearer, to making life clearer
The time we're together grows dearer and dearer
When I must travel and I have to leave her alone
She's in my song.

Chorus:
And I sing for Joy
For the smile that it brings, from the heart
Through these guitar strings
It was only noise, till her love put a song
In the soul of this good ole boy
I sing for Joy.

Of her love put a song
In the soul of this good ole boy
I sing for Joy...
