Lullaby Lyrics: You Are My Sunshine


"You are My Sunshine" was originally recorded by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell in 1939 and has since become one of the most commercially programmed songs in American pop music. There are so many great covers, my favorite being the one by Elizabeth Mitchell.


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 sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
But 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.

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.
Please don't take my sunshine away.
