Heavenly Day

Performer/Songwriter: Patty Griffin
Category: Contemporary

Patty Griffin included this song in her 2007 album Children Running Through, which won the American Music Association's Album of the Year (she also won Artist of the Year that same year). Patty is an American folk artist whose songs have been covered by some pretty big names: Linda Ronstadt, Dixie Chicks, Bette Midler, Jessica Simpson, Martina McBride, Emmylou Harris, Solomon Burke, Miranda Lambert and Kelly Clarkson.

Heavenly Day has a laid-back folky feel, and if performed live, REALLY should be done with guitar accompaniment!

Oh heavenly day, all the clouds blew away
Got no trouble today with anyone
The smile on your face I live only to see
It's enough for me, baby, it's enough for me
Oh, heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

Tomorrow may rain with sorrow
Here's a little time we can borrow
Forget all our troubles in these moments so few
All we've got right now, the only thing that
All we really have to do
Is have ourselves a heavenly day
Lay here and watch the trees sway
Oh, can't see no other way, no way, no way
Heavenly day...

No one at my shoulder bringing me fears
Got no clouds up above me bringing me tears
Got nothing to tell you, I've got nothing much to say
Only I'm glad to be here with you
On this heavenly, heavenly, heavenly, heavenly
Heavenly day, all the trouble's gone away
Oh, for a while anyway, for a while anyway
Heavenly day...
