10/23/15 - NNHS Newsletter - Keep on the Sunny Side

The Indian Summer of life should be a little sunny and a little sad,
like the season, and infinite in wealth and depth of tone, but never hustled.”

- Henry Adams
(16 Feb 1838 - 27 Mar 1918)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Do you have "comfort movies" that you just like to watch again and again?  I have several.  This song is featured in one of them - O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000).

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keep_On_the_Sunny_Side:  

Keep On the Sunny Side is a popular American song originally written in 1899 by Ada Blenkhorn (1858–1927) with music by J. Howard Entwisle (1866–1903). The song was popularized in a 1928 recording by the Carter Family. A recording of the song with The Whites was featured in the 2000 movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?.

In 1899 Ada Blenkhorn was inspired to write the Christian hymn by a phrase used by her nephew. Blenkhorn's nephew was disabled and always wanted his wheelchair pushed down "the sunny side" of the street. The Carter Family learned of the song from A. P. Carter's uncle who was a music teacher, and they recorded the song in Camden, New Jersey in 1928. "Keep on the Sunny Side" became their theme song on the radio in later years. A.P. Carter's tombstone has a gold record of the song embedded in it.[1][2]

“But the fruit was placed in your room every day. It isn’t our fault you didn’t take advantage of it.”

“I see,” said the man as he subtracted $150.00 from the bill.

“What are you doing?” sputtered the manager.

“I’m subtracting 50 dollars a day for your kissing my wife.”

“What? I didn’t kiss your wife!”

“Ah,” replied the man, “but she was there.”

Keep On the Sunny Side

Words by Ada Blenkhorn (1858–1927), 1899

Music by J. Howard Entwisle (1866–1903), before 1902

Recorded by The Whites, before 2000


 There's a dark and a troubled side of life;
There's a bright and a sunny side, too;
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife,
The sunny side we also may view.

[chorus]
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life;
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way,
If we keep on the sunny side of life.

Tho' the storm in its fury break today,
Crushing hopes that we cherished so dear,
Storm and cloud will in time pass away,
The sun again will shine bright and clear.

Let us greet with a song of hope each day,
Tho' the moments be cloudy or fair;
Let us trust in our Savior alway,
Who keepeth everyone in His care.
