Armstrong, Louis - On The Sunny Side Of The Street Lyrics

Grab your coat and grab your hat baby
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
On the sunny side of the street

Can't you hear that pitter-pat there?
That happy tune is yours now
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade
With those blues on parade
But I'm not afraid baby
My rover, crossed over

If I never have a cent
I'll be rich as Rockefeller
With gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street

  8. Slim Rythmman

    i love you Louis.

  9. Anthony Faria

    Louis is simply the greatest American born musician ever.

  10. Bob Dillaber

    I was only 16 years old 62 years ago when I had the glorious experience of being at his concert at Notre Dame in South Bend. To this day it remains a highlight of my life. Most don't know that Louie was an orphan in the Waif's Home in New Orleans when given his first trumpet by a man who cared about him. Louis Armstrong represents the best of America.


    thank you for sharing your great memories.

    T 'omas Hughes

    wow! awesome memory, and Luis trivia! We played this (and other Satch) for our daughter ,in utero! My grandmother and i used to dance to his music all her life, and discovering reefer, around the same time i read Luis interview (reprint from the 60's) about being a Viper. That combination , made this gen x'er into a "viper hepcat" for life! "Luis, you took the gift God gave you, and gave His joy to us! So happy to see how many folks are still touched by your music. Here's to Gold Dust at all of yer feet!"


    Could not agree more with that last sentence!

    Peter Mower

    Thank you for sharing. His music is bittersweet to me, knowing I can never see him live. His legacy is far more than just his music. What an icon.

    bill howes

    @T 'omas Hughes yeah pops was a stone viper he would come on the band room ,toss a few cigar sized joints on the table and say" let's. get high" a late friend of mine knew him and had some great stories.

  11. Matthieu Maier

    Yo who is this bone player?

    Matthew Williams

    Sounds like Trummy Young

    Clarke Laidlaw

    yep.Trummy,no mistaking his tone.

  12. Jacqueline Leiman

    Great musician, not-so-great vocalist.

    Andrew UK

    Agree but he was a great entertainer and as a result people warmed to him. No comparison I know but Kylie Minogue, Cilla name a great vocals either but they have/had 'it' which can compensate for a lot

  13. nbbob23

    People should never, never forget Louis . . . and, this song is just wonderful . . . .

  14. Ditto's

    What beautiful song... I will use this for my date

    the genius of the man's music is so often overlooked. people think Hello Dolly and What A Wonderful World. He practically invented popular music as we know it. GO SATCHMO !.

    Louis Armonstrong un grande inmortal. Con su voz quebrada cantaba excelente. Y un gran virtuoso con la trompeta. Todas sus interpretaciones son memorables. Pero en éste tema me gustaría destacar el TROMBÓN DE BARA, extraordinario, de una musicalidad y una dulzura que no me canso de admirar.

    Jonathan Castro

    +rolo24745 es un excelente artista, sinceramente su musica me deja practicamente sin palabras...

    Daniel Paul Debs

    Music, the language of the world! Immortal, excellent, virtuous, memorable, extraordinary, admirable. And I don't even speak Spanish!

    Bernardo H

    After listening to this song, I decided to take the route that was not shady, and frolicked around the sidewalk, much happier than the other side of the street.

  62. anonimusketeer
