You are my sunshine is a timeless classic that has been covered by a wide range of artists including Johnny Cash, the Beach Boys, and others. Because of the positive lyrics, the song is also known as a children’s lullaby.

The song gained popularity in 1939 and was later designated as one of Louisiana’s state songs due to its association with country singer Davis, who served as governor from 1944 to 1948.

The song has been recorded so many times as a result of its popularity that it has become one of the most commercially successful hits in American music. Although Davis and Mitchell were originally credited with writing the song, Davis never claimed authorship. Instead, he bought the song from Paul Rice and signed it with his own name as the author.

It’s ideal for those who are just getting started because it’s played at a slow pace and is relatively simple. It’s very relaxing and can be played by anyone of any age or skill level, so you can teach yourself and your children how to play.
