You Are My Sunshine

One of the few songs that could instantly move me to tears.

Thanks Johnny.

Lyrics:

The other nite, dear
As I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear
I was mistaken
So I bowed my head and I cried

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

I’ve always loved you
And made you happy
And nothing else could come between
But now you’ve left me
To love another
You have shattered all of my dreams

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.

    I’ve known the chorus of this song for more than half my life. Then I learned the first verse a few years ago and now I finally saw the lyrics to the full song.

    It’s funny how this is taught as a children’s song because of the chorus when in reality it’s so freaking sad and heartbreaking. Such an amazing song though…
