Keep On The Sunny Side

Words & Music:



A   D   A   E   A   E   A



          A            D            A

There's a dark & a troubled side of life.


There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too.


Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife,

    E                      A

The sunny side we also may view.



A                       D                   A

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,


Keep on the sunny side of life.

        A                          D                A

It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way,

                     E             A

If we'll keep on the sunny side of life.


INSTRUMENTAL SOLO:  [over intro chords]


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.




INSTRUMENTAL SOLO:  [over intro chords]


Let us greet with the song of hope each day.

Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair,

Let us trust in our Saviour away

Who keepeth everyone in His care.


CHORUS:  [2x]
