Ridin' The Sunshine Special
Recorded by Johnny Horton
Written by Chuck Murphy and Huel Murphy

I’m gonna ride that happy train when it comes rolling
When it comes rocking and a-rolling down the track

I found a one way ticket on the sunshine special
A7 D7 G
I ain’t a-counting on coming back

I got a gal a waiting down in sunshine valley
In the valley where the blues are not allowed

And the sunshine special is a-rocking and a-rolling
A7 D7 G
Neath a sky of blue that never has a cloud

I left the blues far behind me
I’ll never worry about ‘em anymore
A7 D7
I’m going where troubles cannot find me
They’ll have a band to meet me
When I pull up by the station door

When the sunshine special heads in your direction
Just be waiting at the station with your pack

That’s one ride you can afford when they holler all aboard
A7 D7 G
It’s goodbye blues we ain’t a-coming back

Repeat #3,4

A7 D7 G
It’s goodbye blues we ain’t a-coming back
