G7        C        C/B      Bm7-5  E7
Grab your coat and get your hat,

            F             Bm7-5  Bb9
Leave your worries on the door - step;

Am     Am+7      D9    D7
Just direct your feet

       F      G7          C
To the sunny side of the street.

G7        C        C/B   Bm7-5   E7
Can't you hear the pitter-pat?

         F             Bm7-5  Bb9
And that happy tune is your  step!

Am     Am+7      D9    D7
Life can be complete

       Dm7   G7           C 
On the sunny side of the street.


  CM7      C7  Gm7     C7    Gm7        F
I used to walk in the shade with those blues on parade;

    D9  Am7    D7          G7            G9   
But I'm not afraid -- this rover crossed over!

G7    C    C/B   Bm7-5   E7
If I never had a cent,

         F               Bm7-5  Bb9
I'd be rich as Rock - e - fel - ler,

Am       Am+7    D9    D7
Gold dust at my feet

       Dm7   G7           C
On the sunny side of the street.
