Chords for "Look A Little On The Sunny Side"
Date: October 12, 1999 1:34 AM From: Dan H It's not easy arranging something for voice & guitar that was originally meant to be played by two trumpets, a trombone and a tuba, but I think I pulled it off. G7 C9 F G7 C9 F Look a little on the sunny side, Even when they say you're on the slide, C9 F6 And for a while they'll say your records never make it, C9 F6 But in a while they're gonna be showering you with praises. F E+ Cm/Eb D7 They'll give you mediocre reviews and put you in the underground for a while, G7 C9 F G7 C9 F But look a little on the funny, sunny side of life, look a little on the sunny side. F6 C9 You sing 'em the blues and then they ask for a happy tune, F6 And when you start to smile they'll say gimme dat rhythm and blues, A And when you give 'em dat rhythm and blues they'll simply smile and say E A C7 We didn't want to hear you play, we didn't like you any way. G7 C9 F It's very hard to please the people every single time, G7 C9 F But look a little on the sunny side. G7 C9 F G7 C9 F Look a little on the sunny side, even when you feel you want to hide, C9 F6 You gotta laugh, don't let your critics ever upset you, C9 F6 'Cos for a while the cynics will all be out to get you. F E+ You gotta be shrewd, you gotta be strong, Cm/Eb D7 You've gotta convince yourself that you are not wrong, G7 C9 F Whistle a tune and think of a catchy, happy, little song G7 C9 F And look a little on the sunny side. G7 C9 F It's very hard to please the people every single time, G7 C9 F But look a little on the sunny side. F E+ They're gonna put you down for a while, Cm/Eb D7 You've got to learn to grit your teeth and smile G7 C9 F G7 C9 F And look a little on the funny, sunny side of life, look a little on the sunny side.
