Lyrics You Should Know: “Why Worry” by Dire Straits

In 1985, Dire Straits released their classic album, “Brothers In Arms.” I must have listened to it the entire year, riding my bike along the Muskingum River in the summer moonlight and the track “Why Worry” features not only poignant lyrics but a soft steel guitar ending that always relaxes me in stressful times. “Money For Nothing” might have been the monster hit, but this song is my favorite on the album and in today’s times, it is a lullaby for the ages…

“Why Worry”
by Dire Straits

Baby I see this world has made you sad
Some people can be bad
The things they do, the things they say
But baby I’ll wipe away those bitter tears
I’ll chase away those restless fears
That turn your blue skies into grey

Why worry, there should be laughter after the pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now

Baby when I get down I turn to you
And you make sense of what I do
I know it isn’t hard to say
But baby just when this world seems mean and cold
Our love comes shining red and gold
And all the rest is by the way

Why worry, there should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now
