GUEST,David Lyr Req: You Are My Sunshine - alternate lyrics (19) RE: Lyr Req: You Are My Sunshine - alternate lyrics 27 Sep 14

Very nice, Jane.

My daughter had a ladybug crib toy that played this song when you squeezed its feet. so my daughter loved the tune.

over the years i've been singing it to her. but the verse about waking and not finding his loved one there is too sad. and recently i've had to start traveling regularly - which is hard on her.

last night, i started singing it to her as we snuggled in bed. and she started crying. she told me that it makes her think of how she misses me when i'm not home. sigh.

so i went out looking for alternative verses (i tried my hand at it, but i wasn't too pleased with my attempts). jane's version is perfect. i'll be singing these to her now.

thanks jane!
