"The Sun's Gonna Shine in My Door" as written by and Willie Broonzy....
Just sittin' here hungry and ain't got a dime,
Lord, look like my friends would come to see poor me sometime;
Cause it doesn't matter who, Lord of Heaven,
Mama, the sun gonna shine in my door someday.

When I was in jail, expecting a fine,
When I went 'fore the judge, not a friend could I find,
Cause it doesn't matter who, Lord of Heaven,
Woman, the sun gonna shine in my door someday.

Lord, I lost my father and my brother, too,
That's why you hear me singing; Lord, I'm lonesome and blue,
'Cause it doesn't matter who, Lord of Heaven,
Mama, the sun gonna shine in my door someday.

Cried aloud, Lord, Lordy, Lord,
Now, I used to be your regular, woman, now I got to be your dog,
Cause it doesn't matter who, Lord of Heaven,
Woman, the sun gonna shine in my door someday.

Lord, I'm in trouble, no one to pay my fine;
Lord, when I get out of this county jail,
I'm gonna leave this town of mine,
Cause it doesn't matter who, Lord of Heaven,
Mama, the sun gonna shine in my door someday.

Lord, I've been droven from door to door,
Now, it look like my friends don't want me around no more,
Cause it doesn't matter who, Lord of Heaven,
Woman, the sun gonna shine in my door someday.

I was with my buddy through thick and thin,
Lord, my buddy got away, but I got in;
Cause it doesn't matter who, Lord of Heaven,
Mama, the sun gonna shine in my door someday.
