Lyrics: Love Me or Leave Me

8/01/2011 – 12:00 PM

Another Great Song w/chords –

On The Sunny Side Of The Street  –
Words & Music by Dorothy Fields & Jimmy Hugh, 1929 – Recorded by Jo Stafford, 1945 (#17)
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.

    About me:
    The Jazz Station Sunday Jam Mission:
    PROFILE 124 W. Broadway Eugene Oregon, USA – Rich Platz – Master Of Ceremonies – Live Jazz at The Sunday Jam124 W. Broadway 541-302-8188 >>>>
    Express, from the depth our souls, our gift to give freely through improvisation! That is The Happy Drummer declaration! Be in the moment and transcend even hours and hours of grinding out, step by step, your practice of techniques and skills, memorizing into the unconscious; to indeed move your eyes off the written notes of the page. Attempt to step onto the stage and carve out your space for all to hear your testimony of your inner voice of experience. From this, one could become a BandLeader, and teacher of new and curious budding students of the art of jazz!

    Cheers, thehappydrummer

    Yes , this is the true nature of jazz: “tour de force” and spontaneity. Excitement in the “Un-Planned”. Make the voice an istrument! Thanks Amy!

      when the Happy Drummer is not happy the world is not happy!

      When you’re smiling
      when you’re smiling

    I am happy about the way the Sunday Jam went on 8/7/11! I haven’t had this much fun in a while! I loved the dueling skatting with Kenny ( and Rich), that was my favorite!!
