Gene Cotton – Sunshine Roses lyrics

Back in 1955
Wasn't hard to survive
You know that no one lived
But no one died and no one
Thought we'd every cry

Sunshine roses, sweet holy moses
Ethan Allen, come and sing me a song
Any day now, Lord, any way now
Somebody come and take us away
Someone come and take us away

It was 1963, I said hello
You know I'm free and
I've come to claim our liberty
For you and you and you and me

Come on, sing it now

It was there upon the hill
Five hundred thousand standing still
With our hopes and dreams that never
Will become the truth someday until

We start singing now

The joker's laughing on the floor
No one knows why or knows what for
But I think it's time we close the door
Before it's 1984

Come on, sing it now

Let me hear you now

Everybody now
