      About "Can't Control The Wind"

      Lyrics for Ricky Skaggs - "Can't Control The Wind"

      When I was a boy daddy was my guiding light
      We'd take walks and talk about fishing girls and life
      He'd help me with my homework cheer me up when I was down
      Best friend that I ever had I miss havin' him around
      He'd say do the very best you can with all that you've been blessed
      And if the load's too great for you the Lord will do the rest
      Keep one thing in mind if all else should fail
      You can't control the wind but you can adjust the sail
      Daddy lost his job when the factory closed
      Times were hard bills to pay he was troubled and it showed
      But he said son don't worry it's all to no avail
      We can't control the wind but we can adjust the sail
      I think of his advice when life turns its back on me
      There is no mountain I can't climb if I start down on my knees
      I'll do the very best I can with all that I've been blessed
      And if the load's too great for me the Lord will do the rest
      I'll keep one thing in mind if all else should fail
      I can't control the wind but I can adjust the sail
      No I can't control the wind but I can adjust the sail
