LET THE SUN SHINE DOWN ON ME
(Jean Ritchie)

CHORUS
O, Roll on, clouds in the mornin',
Roll on, clouds in the mornin',
Roll on, clouds in the mornin',
Let the sun shine down on me.

I looked out this mornin’,
Deep down trouble I see;
Yes I looked out this mornin’,
Let the sun shine down on me.
CHORUS

Saw the big cloud a-risin',
Hard trouble I see;
Heard my mother cryin',
Let the sun shine down on me.
CHORUS

There was water, but I couldn't drink it,
Deep down trouble I see,
Bread, but I couldn't eat it,
Let the sun shine down on me.
CHORUS

I know there's a great day comin'
When no more trouble I see;
When we'll all shout together,
Let the sun shine down on me.
CHORUS
