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 Show me that river, take me across Wash all my troubles away Like that lucky old sun, give me nothin' to do But roll around heaven all day (Right from the dawnin', through till the evenin') (Nothin' but slavin', and all the time I pray) Weary, so weary (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 has nothin' to do) (But roll around heaven all day) Good Lord above, can't you know I'm pinin' Tears all in my eyes Send down that cloud with a silver lining 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 (Transcribed from the Frankie Laine recording by Mel Priddle - March 2009)
