lyrics

The Sunshine Blues

Hey Mr. Sun
Why don’t you leave here your work is done
Get out of my town I don’t need you around Mr. Sun

I had a woman I loved her true
Only God knows what that woman put me through
A heart-bereft man all she left me was these blues

I don’t need no sun telling me it’s time to get up
The flowers and birds can do one too
It’ll take a heart attack or unless she takes me back
I’ll stay here with the sunshine blues

Hey Mr. Sun
I hate the way you smile as if you’ve won
I’ll find a way to darken my days Mr. Sun
You can tell that woman over there
I hope the Devil gets her by the hair
Drags her to hell keeps that mademoiselle
Locked in his lair

I don’t need no sun telling me it’s time to get up
The flowers and birds can do one too
It’ll take a heart attack or unless she takes me back
I’ll stay here with the sunshine blues

Hey Mr. Sun
There was a time when all you stood for was fun
That was way back when I still had some friends Mr. Sun

How lonely can you get?
How many hairs can you pull from your head?
How many days does it take to forget?

I don’t need no sun telling me it’s time to get up
The flowers and birds can do one too
It’ll take a heart attack or unless she takes me back
I’ll stay here with the sunshine blues

Hey Mr. Rain
Well it sure is good to see you again
I’ve been too long singing this old song Mr. Rain
