Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Plus

Four ladies promenade one time around that ring
Back home swing and whirl now with your man
You walk around that corner girl and turn the partner by the left
Put the head ladies center and do the teacup chain
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


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade and travel halfway around your ring
Walk in, touch 1/4, then walk & dodge
Dosado the outside two, swing thru there, too
Boys run right and the couples circulate
3/4 tag the line, and then the boys swing thru, girls turn back
Extend that tag, swing the corner, promenade
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

You Are My Sunshine
 
 

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
So please don't take my sunshine away

The other night dear as I lay dreaming
I dreamt that you were by my side
Came disillusion when I awoke dear
You were gone and then 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
So please don't take my sunshine away

You told me once dear there'd be no other
That no one else could come between
But now you've left me to love another
You have broken all my dreams

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
So please don't take my sunshine away

Lyrics by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell.
Recorded by The Pine Ridge Boys; The Rice Brothers Gang; many others.
