Russell, Leon - That Lucky Old Sun Lyrics




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 'til I'm wrinkled and gray
While that lucky old sun has nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day

Good Lawd above, can't you know I'm pinin'
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

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 'til I'm wrinkled and gray
While that lucky old sun has nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day

Good Lawd above, can't you know I'm pinin'
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

  11. alan james heidemann

    Truly A MASTER that lived through the music he played. Thanks for the melodies!

  12. Primevals33

    In the movie '' Liars Moon '' there is a version of this song sung. Does anyone know who sang it in the film?

  13. vic button

    The earth must be flat then!!!

  14. Susan Predis

    Sent this out for the eclipse. Thank you Master of Space and Time

  15. Shakeytunes

    Listened to this song by a number of artists and have to say that this is the best as far as I'm concerned

  16. James ALEXANDER

    Cut your hair and shave and see if you sound better.

    gsdsteve

    Lol! What a brainless moronic comment!

  17. James ALEXANDER

    Terrible copying. It would be good if he wasn't trying to copy Willie and make money off of his style.

    BadfingerBoogieBarb

    What an asinine comment.

    James ALEXANDER

    At least, Boxcar Willie could sing with many different styles, including his own. He deserved to get rich.

    Susan Predis

    James ALEXANDER he did this with Willie years ago. Oh yea it's called a cover

  18. Judi Harbin

    And now Leon is rolling around heaven all day.  God rest his soul.  “From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised.” -  Psalm 113:3
