Thursday Theme Song

Madi and I thank Hootin' Anni for sponsoring Thursday Theme song...
Today's song is 'You are My Sunshine'..  It was written by Louisiana's former Governor Jimmie Davis
and Charles Mitchell copyright 1940.  It is one of the two official songs for the State of Louisiana
It is dedicated to our friends in Louisiana at Jacqueline's Cat House
There is a short video of the song at the end so that you will know the tune to the song.
Your are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You Make me happy, when skies are gray
You'll never know, dear how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
The other nite, dear
As I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken, and I hung my head and cried.

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 told me once, dear you really loved me
And no one else could come between, but now you've left me, and love another
You have shattered all my dreams

Louisiana my Louisiana
the place where I was borne, white fields of cotton, green fields of clover, the
best fishing and long tall corn,
You are my sunshine my only sunshine,
crawfish gumbo and jambalaya, the biggest shrip and sugar cane, the finest oysters and sweet strawberries
from Toledo to New Orleans,
You are my sunshine my only sunshine


  1. What a happy song choice, I love this song. I started humming along as I read the lyrics. That is such a cool photo of the moon and I love the collage of Madi. It looks like your sunshine was trying to find a sunny spot for a nap.

    You asked about the colors in the water on my photos. All of the color is made by reflections of trees and sky on the water and the ducks were creating movement which swirled the color. It's all natural with no special effects by the computer.

    Happy Thursday,
    J and Cindi Lou

  2. I used to have a plush little sunshine that played that song when you pull the cord :) Loved it

  3. Madi,
    You are "our" Sunshine!

  4. "Sunshine on my shoulders, makes me happy", John Denver. Another "bright" song!!!!

  5. You are my little ray of little southern ray.

  6. I used to sing this song to Irene, my daughter, when she was so very little!!! It holds true still today...she IS my sunshine. As is your Madi!! Madi, you ARE a star...shining bright for us all who have the privilege of visiting you!!!

    PS...your link is broken on the Themesong hub, if you'd care to re-add one that is corrected.

    Have a great day you two!!!

  7. Hi Madi - I LOVE this song. I don't think I have ever read all the words and had no idea it turns sad at the end!

    Your pal, Pip

  8. That is such a great, happy, peppy song! We can SO tell you're your mom's sunshine. You even our sunshine too!!!

  9. "Mom", the hub...where you put your link up for Mr. Linky. I clicked on it this morning and it said "No blog found" At the ThemeSong site. No worries on the linking with the button.

    Don't work too hard now, y'hear?

  10. I remember that song and enjoyed the history behind it!
    It's the perfect theme song for Madi today! She is always chasing sun beams!
    Hugs, Kathy

  11. Well Madi all I can say is YOU are my sunshine. Great song....

  12. Yes Madi you are my sunshine! I use to sing that song when I was a child. I didn't know all the words or the history of the song!!! Thank-you SOSOSO much for both!!!!
    Bambi is still doing good. She goes to the vets today at 5:30pm. We will see if I have done a good job keeping her from scratch too much!!?
    Will blog about it tonight or tomorrow.

  13. I remember this song from as far back as I can remember. I don't know if my mother sang it to me, or perhaps one of my grandmothers, I just know I grew up knowing the words without thinking about it.
