♫On the Sunny Side of the Street

From “Happiness Hour” at church, I learned this song.  Life can be sweet if you focus on positive side even if you are in the midst of a storm.

Words By Dorothy Fields

Grab your coat and get your hat

Leave your worry on the doorstep

Just direct your feet

To the sunny Side of the street

Can’t you hear a pitter pat

And that happy tune is your step?

Live can be so sweet

On the sunny side of the street

I used to walk in the shade

With those blues on parade

But I’m not afraid

This Rover crossed over

If I never have a cent

I’ll be rich as Rockefeller

Gold dust at my feet

On the sunny side of the street

  1. Dear Kathy,

    I have been following your progress on your blog. I am sorry to hear about the nasty side effects from the chemo, but I am glad to hear that your spirits are lifted by the support of family and friends. Please count me among the members of Neighborhood Church who are praying for your swift and complete recovery.

    I liked your entry about “Sunny Side of the Street.” I have loved that song since I was a small child. Here is a link to a version I particularly like by Tommy Dorsey and his band. (Side note: Frank Sinatra sang with Tommy Dorsey’s band early in his career.) Tell George that I said that Tommy Dorsey’s arrangement is particularly good for dancing and all pretty girls like to dance – hint, hint!


    You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Sweet Kathy! You are on my mind today. A friend sent me an email about the power of women and I thought of YOU. I want you to know how wonderful your words of hope and encouragement are to those around you. You are truly a remarkable individual. Thank you so much for your honesty and open heart. I lift you up to Him that you will receive every resource you require to travel this difficult path and emerge with new strength and vitality. Amen. Much love, Karen
