DT Lyrics:

Subject: Origins: 'Last night while I lay sleeping,'
From: Western Trails
Date: 08 Nov 15 - 11:41 PM

When I first heard "Columbus Stockade Blues," I quickly noticed the similarities between one verse in that song and a verse in "You are my Sunshine." In "Columbus Stockade Blues," it goes something like "Last night while I lay sleeping/I dreamed that I was in your arms/When I woke I was mistaken/I was peering through the bars."
Could it have originated with Darby and Tarlton, or was it a floating verse?
