Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »

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
The other night dear as I laid sleeping I dreamed I held you by my side
When I awoke dear I was mistaken and I hung my head and cry
You are my sunshine
You told me once dear you really loved me and no one else could come between

But now you've left me and you love another and you have shattered all my dreams
You are my sunshine
I'll always love you and make you happy if you will only say the same
But if you leave me to love another you'll regret it all some day
You are my sunshine
Please don't take my sunshine away
