Songwriter(s): Sandy Denny


Baby every cloud has a silver lining
Baby every dog really has his day
And it matters to me to see you smiling
Why don't you blow all your cares away
Yesterday is gone and will be forgotten
And today is where every new day starts
Got to be free as the leaves in the autumn
You may be sad but it will never last.

Maybe by the evening we'll be laughing
Just wait and see all the changes there'll be
By the time it gets dark
