Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

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

Four ladies chain
Chain 'em over, chain 'em home
Keep your lady, promenade
While that lucky old sun has nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around
Walk in square thru go 4
4 hands and then, a right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel
Touch 1/4, box circulate go 2
Swing the corner lady, promenade
While that lucky old sun has nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Fuss with my women, toil for my kids
Sweat till I'm wrinkled and grey

Wash all my troubles away

That Lucky Old Sun (Just Rolls Around Heaven All Day)
 
 

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

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

Composed by Beasley Smith.
Lyrics by Haven Gillespie.
Recorded by Frankie Laine; Jerry Lee Lewis; Sam Cooke; others.
