Subject: Origins: All Right When the Mist Clears Away

I'm looking for information about a song I recorded off of Mountain Stage 15 or more years ago. I'm not sure who sang it - it could have been Larry himself. I've been singing the song for a long time and am interested in recording it, but I don't know who the writer is, what's the proper title, and who to contact about recording it. I've never seen a reference to it anywhere else.

The chorus goes:

Just let the sunlight break through the darkness
And the night send a beautiful day
Don't let your shadows turn into mountains
You'll be all right when the mist clears away.

Does anybody know?

Dan

I found a little bit, Dan - it's called "When the Mist Clears Away," and it's on a 1983 Larry Groce album called Medicine Man. Not listed at Harry Fox, BMI, or ASCAP.

Can you post the complete lyrics for us?

Thanks Joe, I'm thinking that must be the one! I'm guessing the song must be written by Larry Groce, then. These lyrics are from memory; I haven't gone back to the source recording for over a decade and and I'm kind of set in my ways about the song now. That happens to me a lot.

When the Mist Clears Away
by Larry Groce (we think)

The other morning just past the sunrise
When the mist was on the hills and all around
I saw a beautiful gray haired woman
And I rolled as I drove into town.
Well I pulled over and I asked her
If I could give her a lift upon her way.
She said, "No thank you, I'm almost home now -
I'll be all right when the mist clears away."

Chorus:
Just let the sunlight break through the darkness
And the night send a beautiful day.
Don't let your shadow turn into mountains -
You'll be all right when the mist clears away.

The other evening long past the sundown
When the neon lights were flashing in the night
I saw a young man sit on a doorstep -
That man was a beautiful sight.
His eyes were bloodshot; his hands were trembling;
I hesitated as I thought I heard him say,
"I know you lose some; you got to hope you win some
You'll be all right when the mist clears away."

Now I've been lonely and I've been angry
Sometimes I don't know just which way to turn.
And I've been lazy and I've been jealous
Sometimes, you know, I think I'll never learn.
But deep inside me if I listen
There's a tiny voice that only seems to say
Don't be mistaken - you're not forsaken
You'll be all right when the mist clears away.


Dan

I too have been scouring the net looking for info on the writer for this song. My search led me to this thread. I remember also hearing it performed on Mt. Stage live, I remember recording it and listening to it enough to be able to play it but the last time I tried to find the tape it was missing :( . I believe you may be right that it was Larry singing it but I can't be certain.

I remember just a couple of the lines a bit differently.

In the first verse I think it might be
"on the road as I drove through the town"

In the second verse I remember it as
"That man he was a pitiful sight" instead of beautiful
and
"God I hope you win some"
Again this was many many years ago and the ol' memory may not be what it used to.

This is such a wonderful song, and everyone I've sung it for says the same. Just wish I could give credit where it's due!
