You Are My Sunshine
(Jimmy Davis & Charles Mitchell)

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 miss 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 some day:

You told me once, dear, you really loved me
And no one else could come between.
But not you've left me and love another;
You have shattered all my dreams:
