In the beginning there was the sun
And it did shine on me
Showed me the way down the road
Along the twists and turns
Through the alleys and through streets
When I couldn't feel the dirt beneath my feet

Then there came the wind
And it did blow dust on me
Made it hard for my eyes to clearly see
Couldn't wash them with my tears
Couldn't see in front of me
Couldn't feel my way through the dark

When fire came to be
And it felt so hot on me
Then burned the flesh of men from their bones
And left their souls to wander
To stagger in a daze
Along the bent and broken of the earth

Water was last to come
And it did rain on me
It cooled my broke and bitter heart
It poured down from my face
It ran down to my legs
And soothed me deep into my soul

That's interesting, I have my volume pretty low here at work.  Bill just played A Well Respected Man followed by Song of the Sun.  I had to look, as I thought he was following A Well Respected Man with a cover version.

 
It's a completely different chord progression, different tempo, different rhythm.  Maybe there's a similarity in the phrasing and a slight similarity in the strumming style and parts of the melody, but other than that, not much.   I guess we all hear different things in some songs.

Sorry I missed this song, need to buy the album soon.

Seeing Los Lobos this summer on a triple bill with the North Mississippi All Stars and the Tedeschi Trucks Band.  That's going to be a hell of a show!  Check out the "Wheels of Soul Summer Tour" if it comes to your town.
Nice!  {#Cowboy}
