about

First performed in the Broadway musical "Lew Leslie's International Revue" in 1930.

lyrics

Grab your coat and get your hat.
Leave your worries on the doorstep.
Just direct your feet,
To the sunny side of the street.

Can't you hear that pitter-pat,
And that happy beat in your step?
Life can be so sweet,
On the sunny side of the street.

I use to walk in the shade,
With those blues on parade,
But I'm not afraid.
Well, this rover done 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.

I use to walk in the shade,
With those blues on parade,
But I'm not afraid.
Well, I found a four-leaf clover,
And I'm hoping to cross over.

If I never have a cent,
I'll be rich as Rockefeller.
Gold dust at my feet,
On the sunny, the sunny, it's the sunny,
Side of the street.

Green Tie Jazz Band Fremont, California

Traditional Jazz is an important part of American history and cullture. Jazz and the Roaring Twenties have influenced the modern American's way of life in a countless number of ways. We are here to keep this music alive!
We hope to bring a fresh take on old standards all the while staying true to the ways of Armstrong, Teagarden, Kid Ory, Beiderbecke, and the like.
