Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a day that I could give you
I'd give to you a day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I'd sing a song to make you feel this way

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a tale that I could tell you
I'd tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I'd make a wish for sunshine all the while

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high
Sunshine almost all the time makes me high
Sunshine almost always

Words by John Denver, Music by John Denver, dick Kniss and Mike Taylor

    This song, to me, has always been about the bittersweet feelings that accompany the loss of love by a break up and even more by the loss of a loved one through death. The sadness that comes with the memories of better and happier days makes one wish to be able to give those times back to the one who has gone. To give one more song, day, tale and wish to make them remember that special moment and to feel that way again. Sunshine is the great healer of many hurts and can almost always bring a smile, even through the rears.
