Always The Sun Chords And Strumming, The Stranglers

Share the Always The Sun Chords and Strumming:

Did You Know? Always The Sun was originally released in 1986 and later in 1990. Singer Hugh Cornwell originally thought that the song could have been as big as The Strangers biggest hit so far - Golden Brown. It was hit internationally more than in the UK where it reached number 30 in the charts. It reached 15 and 16 in France and almost broke the band in the US.

Always The Sun Lyrics


How many times have you woken up and prayed for the rain?
How many times have you seen the papers apportion the blame?
Who gets to say? Who gets to work and who gets to play?
I was always told at school, everybody should get the same

How many times have you been told
If you don't ask, you don't get?
How many lads have taken your money?
Your Mother said you shouldn't bet
Who has the fun? Is it always a man with a gun?
Someone must have told you, if you work too hard, you can sweat?

There's always the sun, mm (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

How many times have the weathermen told you stories
That made you laugh?
You know its not unlike the politicians and the leaders
When they do things by half
Who gets the job of pushing the knob?
That's what responsibility you draw straws for
If you're mad enough

There's always the sun, mm (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)
You might also like

There's always the sun, mm (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

There's always the sun, mm (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)
There's always the sun, mm (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)
(Always the sun)
(Always the sun)
There's always the sun, mm (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)
There's always the sun, mm (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)
There's always the sun
