Don't let the Sunshine Fool Ya'

Guy Clark / Townes Van Zandt: The Late Great Townes Van Zandt (1972)

E B A E

Don't let the women do you, - Put your hand in mine. 
 
Oh, Fanon street in the afternoon's 
An easy way to get out of tune. 
But the hard soap salesman, he said: "No dice." 
When I asked politely for a better price, and said: 
Don't let the sunshine fool you, - Don't let the bluebirds tool you. 
Don't let the women do you, - Put your hand in mine.

I hope you make it through this time. 
Get yourself a piece of that rainbow pie, 
No reason in the world that you can't get by: 
Don't let the sunshine fool you, - Don't let the bluebirds tool you. 
Don't let the women do you, - Put your hand in mine. 
 
Don't let ...
