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

Chorus
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 and love another
You'll regret it all some day

Repeat Chorus

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

Repeat Chorus

In all my dreams dear, you seem to leave me
When I awake my poor heart aches
So won't you come back and make me happy
I'll forgive dear, I'll take all the blame

Repeat Chorus

    This is such a sad song:(
    But the words are so understanding and strong, in a beautiful way.
    This is a really good song and its even sadder if you saw the movie o brother where art thou
