“I’ll Follow The Sun”

One day you’ll look to seeI’ve gone
For tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun
Some day you’ll know I was the one
But tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go
And though I lose a friend
In the end you will know, oooh
One day you’ll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun
Yea, tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go
And though I lose a friend In the end you’ll know, oooh
One day you’ll find that I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so
I’ll follow the sun
