Rise and Shine

Rise and Shine

Liner Notes: 

Rockin' on one of our new family ukes (the pretty blue one)!
I found myself singing a couple of rise-and-shine songs as I got ready for work the other morning (one by Peter Case, one an old gospel tune) and decided to write my own.


Come on and rise and shine, rise and shine
leave yesterday behind
Rise and shine, come on and rise and shine
throw off the covers, open your blinds

Rise up praying for a brand new day
No delaying – you are on your way

Come on …
and you will find
If you …
you cannot be confined

Rise up singing with joy in your heart
Bells are ringing – it’s a brand new start

Come on and ...
Today might blow your mind!

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
