[Verse]
A
The other night dear as I lay sleeping
            D              A
I dreamed I held you in my arms
        D                  A
When I awoke dear I was mistaken
              E          A
And I hung my head and I cried


[Chorus]

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
            D                    A
You make me happy when skies are gray
             D                     A
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
                     E        A
Please don't take my sunshine away

[Verse]
I'll always love you and make you happy
            D            A
If you will only say the same
           D                  A
But if you leave me to love another
                   E        A
You will regret it all some day


[Chorus]

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
            D                    A
You make me happy when skies are gray
             D                     A
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
                     E        A
Please don't take my sunshine away

[Verse]

You told me once dear, you really loved me
           D                 A
and no one else could come between
               D                  A
but now you've left me and love another
                   E      A
you have shattered all my dreams


[Chorus]

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
            D                    A
You make me happy when skies are gray
             D                     A
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
                     E        A
Please don't take my sunshine away
