You Are My Sunshine


The other night dear, when I was sleeping,
I dreamt I held you in my arms.
When I awoke dear, I was mistaken;
So I hung my head and I cried.

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 now you've left me and love another,
You have shattered all my dreams.

Thanks very much to an anonymous visitor who e-mailed me these verses, which read very much like a response to the original song!

In dreams you say, dear, I come to haunt you,
And leave you lonely to find I'm gone
I make you happy in dreams at nighttime,
But leave you lonely at break of dawn.


I'm still your sunshine, your only sunshine
I'll always love you, though I'm away
I'm still your sunshine, just only yours dear
I'm coming home someday
You said you love me, you'd make me happy,
I'll always love you, you know I'm true
I'll never leave you to love another,
I'll shine alone for you.

I know I told you I really love you
I know I promised my love would stay
I haven't left you to love another
Please keep faith while I'm away.

In every dream I'm with you always
My heart is longing for you alone
I'm coming back, dear, to make you happy
I'll be your sunshine, all your own.
