Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we keep on the sunny side of life

Four ladies chain, chain back home, promenade
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we keep on the sunny side of life


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

All four couples promenade halfway
Heads right & left thru, back away
Sides touch 1/4, boys run, right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, touch 1/4, scoot back
Swing the corner, promenade
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we keep on the sunny side of life


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Circle left
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life

Allemande left your corner, dosado your own
Men star left in the middle of the ring
Meet your partner, turn thru, find the corner lady
Allemande left, come back and promenade
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we keep on the sunny side of life

Keep On The Sunny Side
 
 

Well there's a dark and a troubled side of life.
There's a bright and a sunny side too.
But if you meet with the darkness and strife,
The sunny side we also may view.

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life.
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way,
If we keep on the sunny side of life.

Oh, the storm and its fury broke today,
Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear.
Clouds and storms will in time pass away.
The sun again will shine bright and clear.

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life.
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way,
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life.

Let us greet with a song of hope each day.
Though the moments be cloudy or fair.
Let us trust in our Saviour always,
To keep us, every one, in His care.

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life.
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way,
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life.

If we'll keep on the sunny side of life.

Composed by J. Howard Entwisle.
Lyrics by Ada Blenkhorn.
Recorded by The Carter Family.
