Song Lyric of the Day (Fred Rose, on the Need to ‘Wait for the Light to Shine’)

“Pull yourself together and keep looking for the sign
Wait for the light to shine
Don't forget your brother as you travel through this land
Wait for the light to shine.”—“Wait for the Light to Shine,” written by country music executive, producer and songwriter Fred Rose (1898-1954) and first performed by Roy Acuff and His Smoky Mountain Boys (1945)

This song was also performed by Hank Williams and, post-9/11, by Bob Dylan.
