[Verse 1] The other nite, dear, as I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I held you in my arms.
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 gray.
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. [Repeat Chorus]

[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. [Repeat Chorus]
