Ferry, Bryan - You Are My Sunshine Lyrics




The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So 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 someday

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 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

    The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
    I dreamed I held you in my arms
    When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
    So 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 someday
    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 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

    Nice job - Bryan is so versatile...

  8. Paul Healy

    Thanks Rowland and Autoluminescence for the introduction.

  9. Michael Lovett

    This song, on its own merit, is a classic folk song. The fact that B. Ferry covered it, says a lot about his knowledge of music and folk lore. Love it.

  42. Im Yu

    It's called RANGE..the full spectrum of human emotions, from "sappy" to rock-hard, & all points in between. Brian Ferry's the man. A man.

  43. bocaymon
