Two versions of “You Are My Sunshine” were recorded and released prior to Jimmie Davis’s version.Davis and Charles Mitchell are the credited songwriters of “You Are My Sunshine”.
It has been declared one of the state songs of Louisiana as a result of its association with former state governor and country music singer Jimmie Davis.Davis emphasized his association with the song when running for governor, singing it at all his campaign rallies, while riding on a horse named “Sunshine”.
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away
