Tim O’brien – The Sun Jumped Up Lyrics

By Azlyrics

Well, the sun jumped up in the middle of the east
At five fifteen this mornin’
The wife jumped up to feed the kid
At five fifteen this mornin’

Well, the sun jumped up in the middle of the east
And the wife jumped up in the middle of the bed
And I jumped up in the middle of a dream
At five fifteen this mornin’

Well, the woman got the kid all fed
By six fifteen this mornin’
And I had done made up my bed
At six fifteen this mornin’

Well, the baby played on dancing feet
And the woman stirred up a bite to eat
But that dream still pounded on my head
At six fifteen this mornin’

Well, I walked to work and the sun got warm
At seven fifteen this mornin’
And I held my lunch pail under my arm
At seven fifteen this mornin’

Well, the dream kept ringin’ in my ear
And gettin’ plainer and comin’ clearer
And gettin’ bigger and drawin’ near
At seven fifteen this mornin’

Well, I guess you know how some dreams are
At eight fifteen this mornin’
You can’t remember what they are
At eight fifteen this mornin’

Well, I scratched my head at the factory gate
And I run to keep from bein’ late
And the clock said fifteen after eight
At eight fifteen this mornin’

Well, I waved at the boss and I talked to my friends
At nine fifteen this mornin’
I was fishin’ around inside my brain
At nine fifteen this mornin’

Well, I seen my dream like a haze or a snatch
Or a blaze from some old fiery match
But the rest of the dream I could not catch
At nine fifteen this mornin’

So at fifteen minutes after ten
Or ten fifteen this mornin’
I told my trouble to all my friends
At ten fifteen this mornin’

Well, I told ’em my dream was as plain as day
And how it run like a rabbit away
They said, “Keep tryin’ if it takes all day”
At ten fifteen this mornin’
