You Are My Sunshine

Lyrics: Davis/Mitchell
Music: Davis/Mitchell

Played by James Booker with the Jerry Garcia Band on 10 January 1976

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
