Written by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell in 1940. Here it is sung by Jimmie Davis

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 I cried

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
And nothing else could come between
But if you leave me to allow another
You’ll have shattered all of 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
