Roy Acuff – “Sunshine Special”

Sunshine Special

Writer: Ray Welch

[G] Thank you, Mr. Postman, for the letter you bring
[C] It’s from my little darling and she’s comin’ back a-[G] gain
I’ll [C] meet her at the station, this mornin’ at [G] nine
[D7] Sunshine Special, will be right on [G] time.

CHORUS
[G] Blow your old whistle, strain ev’ry nerve
[C] Open up the throttle and straighten out the [G] curve
Soon, [C] I’ll see my baby, then happy I will [G] be
[D7] Sunshine Special, bringin’ happiness to [G] me.

Remember when she left me, she left me, oh, so cold
Maybe for love or maybe for gold
But now I know she loves me and longs to be mine
Sunshine Special, will be right on time.

See that engine rollin’, she’s Ballin’ the Jack
Her wheels are hummin’ Dixie and her headlight’s on the track
Watch that engine swayin’ as she’s comin’ down the line
Sunshine Special, will be right on time.

CHORUS
