You Are My Sunshine Lyrics

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

The other night dear, as I lay sleepin'
I dreamed, I held you by my side
When I awoke dear, I was mistaken
And I hung my head and I cry

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

You told me once dear, you really loved me
And no one else could come between
But now you've left me and you love another
And you have shattered all my dreams

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

I'll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me to love another
But you'll regret it all some day

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
Please don't take my sunshine away

I sing this daily to my 6 month old daughter and it makes us both smile always. I just sang her to sleep with it, its such a powerful first verse, it is beautiful. Thank you for sharing the full lyrics. x

My Uncle wrote the song, but did not get copy right, so it got out and some one took it! Also my Grand Mother taught me to sing this song, and play guitar, so I wanted to know the rest of the lyrics, so I can start playing for fun again!
