Ray Charles
You Are My Sunshine
LIVE


John Vandehey:  Margie Hendrick's solo at the 1:29 mark is THE great Black voice. The Black, especially The Black female voice and the Soul they put into music is unparalleled. You don't  teach it. It's a gift. Think of some of the outstanding Black R&B/Soul female vocalists of the recent past: Aretha, Etta James, Mitty Collier, Gladys Knight, Justine 'Baby' Washington, Theola Kilgore, Irma Thomas, Ketty Lester, Brenda Holloway, Mary Wells. And many others.

Tom E Muncey:  Margie tears it up on this!  Margie's name should be written all over this! Of Margie Hendrix, Ray Charles said, "Aretha, Gladys, Etta James—these gals are all bad, but on any given night, Margie will scare you to death."

'The other night As I lay sleeping
Whoah, I dreamed I held you
Held you in my arms
Well, but when I woke up this morning
I found out I was mistaken
Do you know that I hung my
I hung my head and cried


Whoah you are my sunshine  (you are my sunshine)
Ohh, my only sunshine  (my only sunshine)
Well, little girl you make me happy sometimes  (you make me happy)   

When my skies are grey  (when skies are grey)
Umm, you'll never never never know dear  (you'll never know, dear)
How much I love you   (how much I love you)
Whoa, and I don't want you to take  (don't take my sunshine)
My sunshine away   (shine away)


[Instrumental Interlude]

You told me once, dear,
That you really loved me
And no one else
Could ever come between, yeah
But now you left me and you love another, yeah
And you have shattered, oh yeah
All of my dreams


Whoah you are my sunshine  (you are my sunshine)
Ohh, my only sunshine  (my only sunshine)
Ohh, you make me happy sometimes (you make me happy)
When my skies are grey (when skies are grey)
Whoa, you'll never never never know dear (you'll never know, dear)
How much I love you   (how much I love you)
Whoa, and I don't want you to take   (don't take my sunshine)
Whoa, if you love me   (don't take my sunshine)
Umm-hmm, if you need me  (don't take my sunshine)
Uh-huh if you want me   (don't take my sunshine)
Waaaahh! Listen   (don't take my sunshine)   (don't take my sunshine)
I don't want you to take  (don't take my sunshine)
Waaaahh! Listen  (don't take my sunshine)  (don't take my sunshine)
I don't want you to take   (don't take my sunshine)
Whoah, my sunshine away  (shine away)'
