You Are my Sunshine

You Are my Sunshine is a lovely lullaby and a love song too.

You Are My Sunshine” is a very popular song by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell and first recorded in 1939. It has been declared one of the state songs of Louisiana because of its association with Davis, a country music singer and governor of the state in the years 1944–1948 and 1960–1964.

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

Lyrics

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

1. 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 grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

2. 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 one day

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

Please don’t take my sunshine away

Song Info

This song is one of the most covered songs in popular music history; there are recordings by more than 300 artists, like Gene Autry, Bing Crosby, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan – just to name a few. Moreover, it is also the most often song taught in children’s music classes.

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.
