That Lucky Old Sun

Song Author Haven Gillespie og Beasley Smith Lyrics by: Haven Gillespie og Beasley Smith Performer: Frankie Laine Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Up in the mornin', [Am]out on the job,
[C]Work like the [F]devil [Dm7]for my pa[C]y, [Cm7]    [C7]    
But that [F]lucky old [Dm7]sun got [C]nothin' [C/B]to     [Fm]do   
But r[C]oll ar[C/B]ound h[Dm7]eaven [G7]all d[C]ay.  

[C]Fuss with my woman, [Am]toil for my kids,
[C]Sweat till I'm w[F]rinkled [Dm7]and gr[C]ay, [Cm7]    [C7]    
While that l[F]ucky old [Dm7]sun got [C]nothin' [C/B]to     [Fm]do   
[C]But ro[C/B]ll aro[Dm7]und he[G7]aven [C]all day.

[Am]Dear Lord a[Em]bove, can't you k[Dm7]now I'm [C]pining,
Tears all [Dm7]in my e[C]yes  
[Am]Send down that [Em]cloud with a [Dm7]silver l[C]ining,
[D]Lift me to [Dm]Par -[Dm7] a - d[G7]ise   

[C]Show me that river, t[Am]ake me across,
[C]Wash all my tr[F]oubles[Dm7] a - w[C]ay; [Cm7]    [C7]    
Like that l[F]ucky old [Dm7]sun, g[Dm7/G]ive me no[C]thing [C/B] to [Fm]do    [Bb9]    
But r[C]oll ar[C/B]ound h[Dm7]eaven [G7]all d[C]ay.  

Up in the mornin', out on the job,
Work like the devil for my pay,
But that lucky old sun got nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day.

Fuss with my woman, toil for my kids,
Sweat till I'm wrinkled and gray,
While that lucky old sun got nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day.

Dear Lord above, can't you know I'm pining,
Tears all in my eyes
Send down that cloud with a silver lining,
Lift me to Par - a - dise

Show me that river, take me across,
Wash all my troubles a - way;
Like that lucky old sun, give me nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day.
