CarterNut Lyr Req: The Sun's Going to Shine In My Back Door (11) Lyr Add: SUN'S GONNA SHINE IN MY BACKDOOR SOMEDAY 28 Jul 98


Here's Mother Maybelle Carter's version, as she recorded it with her daughters in 1950 for Decca.
" Sun's Gonna Shine In My Backdoor Someday"

Oh, Sun's gonna shine in my backdoor someday,
Sun's gonna shine in my backdoor someday;
Sun's gonna shine in my backdoor someday,
March winds gonna blow my blues all away.

1. My momma told me long years ago,
Never to marry a man that I know;
Won't give you money, no descent clothes,
What will become of you God only knows.
Ch.
2. Hard times are comin' so I've been told,
Never sell love for an old richman's gold;
Hard times are comin' that much I know,
But love won't help when your hungry and cold.
Ch.
3. Low down woman tried to steal my man,
Low down woman tried to steal my man;
Low down woman tried to steal my man,
And if I catch her I'll kill her if I can.
