The Statler Brothers

She was standing in the crowd

All alone and lookin' pretty

Listening to the music that we played

She walked up and whispered

I leaned down and listened

To the request that she made

"Do you know, 'You Are My Sunshine'"?

She asked so sweet and tenderly

"Do you know, 'You Are My Sunshine'

And would you do it one more time for me".

Border to border

And ocean to ocean

I still look for her everplace

Chasing the sunshine

Each and every night I'm

Searching every crowd for her face

She was gone just as quick

As the song that she asked for

Taking my sunshine away

But someday when I finally

Look down and see her

I know just what I'm going to say

Do you know, you are my sunshine

Do you know what your smile did to me

Do you know, you are my sunshine

And it looks like you're always going to be


The Statler Brothers were an American country music vocal group founded in 1955 in Staunton, Virginia.

Originally performing gospel music at local churches, the group billed themselves as The Four Star Quartet, and later The Kingsmen. In 1963, when the song "Louie, Louie" by the garage rock band also called The Kingsmen became famous, the group elected to bill themselves as The Statler Brothers.
