That Lucky Old Sun
Ray Charles Lyrics


Dear Lord above, don't you see I'm pinin'
I got tears all in my eyes
Why don't you send down that cloud
With a silver linin'
Lift me to paradise
Show me that river
Why don't you take me across
And wash all my troubles away
I know that lucky old sun, he's got nothin' to do
But just roll around heaven all day

Good Lord above, don't you know I'm pinin'
Tears all in my eyes
Send down that cloud
With a silver linin'
Lift me to paradise
Show me that river
And take me across
Wash all my troubles away
I know that lucky old sun, he's got nothin' to do
Roll around heaven all day

He got nothing but roll around heaven all day
I say he just roll around heaven all day

Roll around heaven all day

My dad loved this song. He sang it a million times. He passed in 2001 and tears are just flowing from hearing this. I miss my dad.

When they day comes they lower me into the ground, I want this song played.

Papa loved it too. Tis his 77th posthumous birthday. Not sure which version he liked cos he sang and played it on the organ. He loved both ol blue eyes and uncle Ray. Tears are truly in my eyes too. Bless you and your angel dad. 👌🏾🕊

Listen closely at 1:29 when he sings, “ I got tears all in my eyes”. I swear, he’s really crying on that line. He even sniffs before singing it. What an absolutely amazing vocal on my this. Goodness.

The great Ray Charles, so soulful, brings tears to my eyes.

There's a lot of great versions but Ray nailed it! The whole arraignment, the back up singers. This is that kind of version that grabs ahold of you and won't let go. I've heard a lot of versions but in the end i have to give it to Ray.
