Chorus:
C          C        C       C
You are my sunshine my only sunshine
C           F     F              C       
You make me happy when skies are gray
C            F         F          C
You'll never know dear how much I love you
C           C       G        C
please don't take my sunshine away. 


The other night dear as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
But when I woke dear I was mistaken
And I hung my head and 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 

Chorus

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

Chorus

You Are My Sunshine - Oliver Hood
You Are My Sunshine is a popular song first recorded in 1939. It has been declared one of the state songs of Louisiana as a result of its association with former state governor and country music singer Jimmie Davis. The song is copyright 1940 Peer International Corporation, words and music by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell. According to a 1990 article by Theodore Pappas, the original song was written by Oliver Hood.

Two versions of "You Are My Sunshine" were recorded and released prior to Jimmie Davis' version. The first was recorded for Bluebird Records (RCA-Victor's budget label) on August 22, 1939 by The Pine Ridge Boys (Marvin Taylor and Doug Spivey), who were from Atlanta. The second was recorded for Decca Records on September 13, 1939 by The Rice Brothers Gang. This group was originally from north Georgia, but had relocated to Shreveport, Louisiana, where they were performing on the city's KWKH radio station. The version by Jimmie Davis was recorded for Decca Records on February 5, 1940.

The Lick samples are gathered from talented online teachers and tabbed in the key in which they were found. Many have been transposed in the Key of Am - at the 5th fret (a popular key when playing the Blues) or the Key of Em - the "guitar key" (all open strings belong to this scale and the most common key for Delta Blues).
