'You Are My Sunshine'  Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchel

"You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away..."

'You Are My Sunshine' is a popular song recorded by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell and first recorded in 1939. It has been declared one of the state songs of Louisiana because of its association with Davis, a country music singer and former governor of the state. bron: Wikipedia.

Hoewel vertolkt door velen is die van Bob Dylan en Johnny Cash tijdens 'The Dylan Cash Session' voor mij toch wel een van de mooiste uitvoeringen.

'You Are My Sunshine'  Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchel

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

The other night 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.

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

You told me once dear, you really loved me
And no one else dear, could come between
But now you've left me and love another
You have shattered all my dreams.

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