You Are My Sunshine song

[Verse 1]

The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping

I dreamed I held you in my arms

But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken

And I hung my head and cried

[Chorus]

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

You make me happy when skies are grey

You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you

Please don’t take my sunshine away

[Verse 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 some day

[Chorus]

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

You make me happy when skies are grey

You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you

Please don’t take my sunshine away

[Verse 3]

You told me once, dear, you really loved me

And no one else could come between

But now you’ve left me and love another

You have shattered all my dreams
