                 G                   B7

Grab your coat, get your hat

                    C                   D7

Leave your worries on the doorstep

Em                         A7  

    Just direct your feet

           Am7 (½)  D7 (½)             G

To the sunny      side of the street


                 G                   B7

Don't you hear the pitter pat

                C                  D7

And that happy tune is your step

Em                         A7  

     Life can be so sweet

            Am7 (½)  D7 (½)            G (2)

On the sunny       side of the street


                 G (2)

I used to walk in the shade

                C (2)

With my blues on parade

A7 (2)

    I'm not afraid

         D (hold)         D7 (hold)          

This rover crossed over


       G                B7

If I never had a cent

               C                  D7

I'd be as rich as Rockefeller

Em                          A7  

    Gold dust at my feet

             Am7 (½)  D7 (½)            G

On the sunny        side of the street
