  Live, True Confessions Tour, Sydney AUS - 25.feb.1986  

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

Had a fuss with my woman, an' I toil for my kids,
An' I sweat 'til I'm wrinkled and gray,
While that lucky old sun got nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day.

Oh, Lord above, don't you hear me cryin'
Tears are rollin' down my eyes.
Send in a cloud with a silver linin',
Take 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.  up

That Lucky Old Sun 2


Feb/Mar 2014
cd imgSHADOWS IN THE NIGHT

  Shadows In The Night sessions, Capitol Studio B, LA - February/Early March 2014  

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

Good Lord, up above, can't you know I'm cryin'
Tears all in my eyes?
Send down that cloud with a silver linin'
Lift me to Paradise

Show me that river, take me across
And wash all my troubles away
Like that lucky old sun, give me nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day

Good Lord above, can't you know I'm cryin'
Tears all in my eyes?
Send down that cloud with a silver linin'
Lift me to paradise

Show me that river, take me across
And wash all my troubles away
Like that lucky old sun, give me nothin' to do
But roll around heaven, heaven, heaven
Oh, roll around heaven, heaven, heaven all day
Let me roll around in heaven all day  up
