"Will the Sun Ever Shine Again?" is from Disney's Home on the Range and sung by Bonnie Raitt.  It reflects on how the animals and humans are losing hope.


Rain is pourin' down like the heavens are hurtin'.
Seems like it's been dark since the devil knows when.
How do you go on, never knowin' for certain,
Will the sun ever shine again?

Feels like it's been years since it started to thunder.
Clouds are campin' out in the valley and glen.
How do you go on, when you can't help but wonder.
Will the sun ever shine again?

What if the rain keeps fallin'?
What if the sky stays gray?
What if the wind keeps squallin',
And never go away?

Maybe the soon the storm will be tired of blowin'.
Maybe soon it all will be over, amen.
How do you go on, if there's no way of knowin'?
Will the sun ever shine?
Wish I could say.
Send me a sign:
One little ray.
Lord, if you're list'nin', how long until then?
Will the sun ever shine again?


  • According to Alan Menken, he wrote it to reflect his thoughts on the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.
