That Lucky Old Sun - The Vaughn Monroe Orchestra/Frankie Laine/Louis Armstrong/Frank Sinatra/LaVern Baker and The Gliders/Jerry Lee Lewis/The Velvets/Chuck Reed/Ray Charles/Aretha Franklin/Sam & Dave/Solomon Burke/Larry Hooper/Jerry Reed/Tom Jones/Willie Nelson/Bob Dylan

That Lucky Old Sun
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 paradise
Show me that river, take me across
Wash all my troubles away
Like that lucky old sun, give me nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day

(Instrumental break)
Send down that cloud with a silver lining, lift me to paradise
Show me that river, take me across
Wash all my troubles away
Like that lucky old sun, give me nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day
