You Are My Sunshine

Jimmie Davis


                G (4)                          

The other night dear as I lay sleeping

                   C (2)                G (2)

I dreamed I held you in my arms

                  C (2)                        G (2)

But when I woke dear I was mistaken

         G             D               G (2)

And I hung my head and I cried



                  G (4)

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

                      C (2)                          G (2)

You make me happy when skies are gray

                     C (2)                           G (2)

You'll never know dear, how much I love you

                   G           D               G (2)

Please don't take my sunshine away


                G (4)     

I'll always love you and make you happy

               C (2)              G (2)

If you will only say the same

                C (2)                       G (2)

But if you leave me and love another

             G      D            G (2)

You'll regret it all some day




                   G (4)     

You told me once dear you really loved me

          C (2)                          G (2)

And no one could come between

                        C (2)                   G (2)

But now you've left me to love another

                 G          D               G (2)

You have shattered all of my dreams




                G (4)     

In all my dreams you seem to leave me

               C (2)                        G (2)

When I awake my poor heart pains

                      C (2)                              G (2)

So won't you come back and make me happy

          G                 D                G (2)

I'll forgive dear I'll take all the blame
