Sunshine on My Shoulders Lyrics by John Denver

Sunshine on My Shoulders Lyrics by John Denver

 

[Chorus:]
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a day that I could give you
I’d give to you the day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I’d sing a song to make you feel this way

[Chorus]

If I had a tale that I could tell you
I’d tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I’d make a wish for sunshine for all the while

[Chorus] 

 

I always wonder why my mother named me “Sunshine”. There was actually a time when I was speaking with a client about my name. He told me, “Is your mom a hippie or what?”. Yes, really. Why Sunshine?

My mom told me that she named me Sunshine because of this song.
