"That Lucky Old Sun" as written by and Beasley Smith Haven Gillespie....
Up in the morning out on the job
Work like the devil for my pay
And that 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 that 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 that lucky old sun
I'll have nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day -
An' Like that lucky old sun
I'll have nothin' to do
But roll around heaven all day.

    General CommentFor me this song has deep personal meaning.

    My grandfather recently passed after years and years of fighting emphysema. Five years ago the doctors gave him six months to live, and he fought on until two months ago when my grandmother passed away. To me this song represents him pleading with God to take him to Heaven, and leave his troubles here on earth. I think my grandfather made his peace with death and was ready to meet his Creator.

    It's a beautifully peaceful song, with personal deep meaning.
