You Are My Sunshine Lyrics

Artist: Ray Charles
Album: You Are My Sunshine

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 gray
You'll never know dear, how much I miss you
Please don't take my sunshine away

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:

You told me once, dear, you really loved me
And no one else could come between.
But not you've left me and love another;
You have shattered all my dreams:

i love this song because wwhen i was a little girl my nana used to always sing it to me as i fell asleep.I also love this song because it is soo soft and slow and iy really makes you think about what he is singing about.And the next reason is because it reminds me of my nana because she lives far away from where i live.I live in alberta an dshe lives in ontario.Finally i love this song because when i listen to it it reminds me of when i was a little baby.

When I was a young teenager my mum taught me "You are my Sunshine" so that a friend and I could go to a local old peoples home and give an "old time" concert which we really enjoyed doing. I am now 57 years old and work as a care assistant in a care home for the elderly, my favourite song to sing is "You are my Sunshine" which certainly brightens up the day for the residents.....even though I dont sing too well|

When I was a little girl, my Dad would sing this song to me. I love Louis Armstrong and so did my Dad. It is nice to share with with others who feel the same.

Great beat ! Positive mood style ;)

This song has been passed down as a lullaby from my mother Florence, to me to my sons, JR and Blake and is now being sung as part of a nighttime routine for TREY and Allé.

Now we can share it with others.
My mother was a night club singer and shared many beautiful songs with her children and I love to keep her memory alive with my sons and grand children in hopes they pass them down.Thanks to Lyric Depot for capturing memories we can tap into.

I had to look up the words as i only know the chorus and sing it to my son.

When my daughter was a new born I sang this song to her, it calmed her every time. Now she is three and she just made me sing it to her again. She tells me that I'm her sunshine. It's funny that this song means so much to her at such a young age. My mom use to sing it to my niece to calm her down. When we would put her in her car seat and she would cry her heart out, so we would drive down the roads singing it to her over and over again just to make a trip without her screaming and crying.

My granddaughters love singing this song together with me. I'm going to write more lyrics for them, that will hopefully help them and me, as they will be far away from me soon...
