Up in the mornin', out on a job
Work like the devil for my pay
While that lucky old sun got nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day

A fuss with my woman, toil for my kids
Sweat 'til I'm wrinkled and gray
While that lucky old sun got nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day

Good Lord up above, can't you hear me cryin'
Tears all in my eyes
Send down that cloud with your silvery linin'
Lift lead to paradise

Oh, show me that river, take me across
Wash all my troubles away
Like that lucky old sun gave me nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day

Like that lucky old sun gave me nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day
