I have been trying to find the lyrics to a Curly Seckler tune called "You Took My Sunshine". No luck. But I did find a YouTube video of him singing the song. I have the lyrics below that I wrote down as I listened to the song. There are a couple of lines (in parentheses) that I just can't seem to figure out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

You Took My Sunshine      Curly Seckler

I hate to see the rain fall on my windowpane.
It reminds me of the day you went away.
(Now far for me to judge) and pray for your return
And help me drive the rain clouds away.

Chorus:
You took my sunshine……………from me,
But you left a sweet memory.
(Oh the happy times we made), but I still love you yet
And I wonder if you ever think of me.

Your face is all I see, do you ever think of me.
Are you wishing you were with me just once more.
Could you ever be the same as the day I changed your name.
Could you love me as you did before.

Heart and yearns?

...sweet memory
   of the happy times we met, but I...?

Thanks, Melissa. These words seem to work better and make more sense than the ones I wrote down.

I think it was supposed to be this:

Now hope in my yearns and prays for your return

However, he got mixed up and put the s's in the wrong place.

I don't think your chorus is missing any words, Diana. You have it right.

From: Jim Dixon

Here's how I hear it:


YOU TOOK MY SUNSHINE
Curly Seckler

1. I hate to see the rain fall on my windowpane.
It reminds me of the day you went away.
Now all I do is yearn and pray for your return*
And help drive these rainy clouds away.

CHORUS: You took my sunshine [all?] with you,
But you left a sweet memory
Of the happy times we've met, but I still love you yet,
And I wonder if you ever think of me.

2. In dreams, your face is all I see. Do you ever think of me?
Are you wishing you were with me just once more?
Could you ever be the same as the day I changed your name?
Could you love me as you did before?


* It would improve the grammar to sing "and pray that you'll return."

Hi - Jim's lyrics are closer. I've listened to it over and over -- I think the first line of chorus is: You took my sunshine.....from me,
THanks everyone!!
