Intro: Am  C  Am

           Am     
You are my sunshine
C       Am      
My only sunshine
    C       F    
You make me happy
      C        Am
When skies are grey
       C     F     
You'll never know dear
    C      Am       
How much I love you
C      Am            Dm       Am
Please don't take my sunshine away

Interlude: Am

          Am         
The other night dear
   C     Am      
As I lay sleeping
  C         F    
I dreamed I held you
C     Am   
In my arms
    C  F    
When I awoke dear
C     Am      
I was mistaken
C     Am      Dm       Am   
and I hung my head and cried

Interlude: Am

            Am        
I'll always love you
C            Am    
and make you happy
   C        F    
If you will only
C       Am   
Say the same
    C      F    
but if you leave me
  C     Am
To have another
C      Am        Dm     Am   
You'll regret it all someday

Interlude: Am

           Am     
You are my sunshine
C       Am      
My only sunshine
    C       F    
You make me happy
      C        Am
When skies are grey
       C     F     
You'll never know dear
    C      Am       
How much I love you
C      Am            Dm       Am
Please don't take my sunshine away

Interlude: Am

          Am                    
In all my dreams, dear, you seem to leave me
       F                   Am        
When I awake my poor heart pains.
            F                     Am 
So when you come back and make me happy
Am                   Dm           Am
I'll forgive you and take all the blame.

Interlude: Am
           
           Am     
You are my sunshine
C       Am      
My only sunshine
    C       F    
You make me happy
      C        Am
When skies are grey
       C     F     
You'll never know dear
    C      Am       
How much I love you
C      Am            Dm       Am
Please don't take my sunshine away

  1. Call me whatever, but sometimes I honestly don’t like using strum patterns. If you just strum down once on the note, it gives it a nice slow quality to the song. Try it, idk

  2. why is this such a minor sounding song?

  3. Like a slot machine, I just keep hitting the transposer until I get chords I know so try +7 if you need EZ.

  4. me too!

  5. Can somebody PLEASE help me with the strumming pattern? Dumb beginner here..

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
