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

This song is by Willie Nelson and appears on the album The Sound in Your Mind (1976) and on the album One for the Road (1979) by Willie Nelson and Leon Russell.

Up in the morning, out on the job
Work like the devil for my pay
And the lucky old sun
Ain't got nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day

Fuss with my woman, toil for my kids
Sweat till I'm wrinkled and gray
But the lucky old sun
Ain't got nothing to do
But roll around heaven all day

Lord above
Can't you see I'm cryin'
Tears are in my eyes
Send down a cloud
With a silver linin'
Take me to paradise

Show me that river, lead me across
Take all my troubles away
Like the lucky old sun
I'll have nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day

And like the lucky old sun
I'll have nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day
