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

    I didn't realise that I'd posted this to Facebook. I thought I was just putting a comment under the lyrics.

    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 everyday, it will brighten all the way.
    If you 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.

    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 everyone in his care,

    Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
    Keep on the sunny side of life,
    It will help us everyday,. it will brighten all the way,
    If you keep on the sunny side of life!

    thank you June Carter!

    Why are Brad Paisley and Charles DuBois lited as songwriters? This song was recorded by the Carter Family before Brad Paisley was born. I don't know who Charles DuBois is, but if he is a contemporary of Brad, he couldn't be a writer of this song either.
