Verse:
Walked with no - one, and talked with no - one, and I had noth - ing but shad- ows.
Then one morn - ing you passed, and I bright - ened at last.
Now I greet the day, and com - plete the day, with the sun in my heart.
All my wor - ry blew a - way when you taught me how to say:
 
Chorus:
Grab your coat and get your hat, leave your wor -ry on the door step,
Just di -rect your feet, to the Sun -ny Side of the Street.
Can't you hear the pit -ter pat? And that hap -py tune is your step
Life can be so sweet On The Sun -ny Side of The Street,
I used to walk in the shade. With those blues on par -ade.
But I'm not a -fraid. This Ro -ver crossed o -ver.
If I nev -er have a cent, I'll be rich as Rock -e -fel -ler.
Gold dust at my feet, On The Sun -ny Side of The Street.
