You Are My Sunshine – How to Play on the Glockenspiel / Xylophone

By Jimmie Davis

Officially it is Jimmie Davis who is considered the songwriter of the song, and as he hails from Louisiana, the song has established itself as one of the two state anthems. Nevertheless, the origin of the song is disputed, as it is said that Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell probably bought the song from Paul Rice.

First recorded in 1939, it quickly reached No. 1 in sales and since then has been covered by more than 350 artists (Ray Charles, Bobby Vinton and Johnny Cash are some of them) and has remained consistently high in the Top 100 of the U.S.A.

However, whatever its story, its lyrics are quite emotional and the song is often sung as a lullaby.
