Carter Family - Keep On The Sunny Side tab

                Keep on the Sunny Side - The Carter Family
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my attempt at a tab for "Keep on the Sunny Side" by The Carter Family
as played on disc one of the "In the Shadow of Clinch Mountain" boxset.

On the cd this is in the key of B.  If you search on youtube, you will find
Ma Carter playing this out of the C position, so presumably she is tuned 
a half step down on the cd. I tabbed this out in C so to play along with
the record tune your guitar a half step down.

C         F                           C
There's a dark and a troubled side of life
                                        G
There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too
        G7                          C
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
G                          C
The sunny side we also may view


Chorus:

C                       F             C
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
                          G
Keep on the sunny side of life
        C                          F                C
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way 
                     G             C
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life


The storm and its fury broke today
Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear
Clouds and storms will, in time, pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear


[Chorus]


Let us greet with the song of hope each day
Tho the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour always
Who keepeth everyone in His care


[Chorus]
