You Are My Sunshine

Showers 18ºC


Mouse over.


Your Are My Sunshine, a song that always gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling, once you even just see the chorus lyrics you will no doubt have this tune playing in your head for the rest of the day. Until I finally saw the full lyrics of this song I had never realised it was really a very sad song...I had always just known the chorus. Here is but only one version of this songs lyrics but I am sure there are a few different versions, one of which has been declared as one of the state songs for the state of Louisiana...

                                                      The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
                                                      I dreamed I held you in my arms
                                                      When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
                                                      So I hung my head and cried


                                                      You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
                                                      You make me happy when skies are grey
                                                      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
                                                      You'll regret it all someday


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


I'm sure you now will have this playing in your head for the rest of the day.
