That Lucky Old Sun (Just Rolls Around Heaven All Day)

Album: Lucky Old Sun (2008)
  • Up in the morning out on my job
    Work like a devil for my pay
    And that lucky old sun
    Ain't got nothing to do
    But roll around heaven all day
    Fuss with my woman toil with my kids
    Sweat till I'm wrinkled and gray
    But that lucky old sun
    Ain't got nothing to do
    But roll around heaven all day
    Lord above can't you see I'm cryin'
    Tears are in my eyes
    Sendin' down my cloud
    With that silvery linin'
    Take me to paradise
    Show me that river lead me across
    Take all my troubles away
    Like that lucky old sun
    I have nothing to do
    But roll around heaven all day
    Like that lucky old sun
    I have nothing to do
    But roll around heaven all dayWriter/s: Beasley Smith, Haven Gillespie
