Story behind the song
I wanted to tribute this song to my dear friend Trish Solomon. She died of a horrible battle with cancer. After hearing her version of this song it gave me chills and influenced me to record this. Music is such an art and when someone shares a very intimate side with you through their art it can really effect you emotionally. Thank you Trish for sharing this piece of you that can live on forever. RIP hun, I know God is taking care of you up there. <3 Also wanted to dedicate this song to Johnny Cash. He's been my hero through the development of my voice and singing;. His version of this song really stuck with me and helped me blend the two styles to create my own.
Lyrics
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 The other night dear, as I laid sleeping I dreamed I held you in me arm When I awoke dear, I was mistaken So I hung my head and I 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 Please don't take my sunshine away Please don't take my sunshine away away
