You Are My Sunshine
recorded by Johnny Cash
written by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell

The other night dear as I lay sleeping
G7          C              G
I dreamed I held you in my arms
G7          C                  G
But when I awoke dear I was mistaken
             D7       G
So I hung my head and cried
You are my sunshine my only sunshine
G7          C                    G
You make me happy when skies are gray
G7           C                    G
You'll never know dear how much I love you
                  D7           G
Please don't take my sunshine away
I'll always love you and make you happy
G7          C            G
If you will only say the same
G7         C                   G
But if you leave me and love another
              D7          G
You'll regret it all some day
repeat #2
You told me once dear you really loved me
G7         C                 G
And no one else could come between
G7             C                  G
But now you've left me and love another
                   D7        G
You have shattered all of my dreams
repeat #2
