Up in the morning out on the job
Work like a devil for my pay
And the lucky old sun ain't got nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day

Fuss with my woman, toil for my kids
Sweat till I'm wrinkled and gray
But the lucky old sun ain't got nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day

Dear Lord above can't you see I'm cryin'
Tears are in my eyes
Send down the cloud with silver line
Take me to paradise

Show me that river, lead me across
Take all my troubles away
Like the lucky old sun, ain't got nothing to do but
But roll around heaven all day
But roll around heaven all day

Songwriters
HAVEN GILLESPIE, BEASLEY SMITH
