For Willowtree











Keep On The Sunny Side
The Whites (from "O Brother, Where Art Thou?")

There's a dark & a troubled side of life
But there's a bright and a sunny side too
Tho' you meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side you also may view

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

Tho' the storm and its furies raged today
Crushing hope that we cherish so dear
The clouds and storms will in time pass away
And the sun again will shine bright and clear

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

Let us greet with the song of hope each day
Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair
And let us trust in our Saviour always
He'll keep us everyone in His care


Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

Hehe, thanks Frank. That really made my day. I've always loved that song, especially when I got a bit older and realized what all of the words were. Im sure my father owns about 5 different versions of that song.
It's really good to see and remember it though. Thanks so much.

Jocelyn, I'll bet that Kermie does have a soundtrack or two under his belt, but as far as I know he didn't get to work on this one. This song is an old hymn, probably from Appalachia.

Willowtree, I'm glad you liked it! It's a simple old song, simple yet true. Now I notice I hear a small version of it on a radio commercial. I also thought you'd like Kermie singing along with it, too!
