Chorus
You are my [C] sunshine, my only sunshine [C7]
You make me [F]  happy when skies are [C] gray [C7]
You'll never [F]know dear, how much I [C] love you
[Am] Please don't [C] take my [G7] sunshine a- [C] way

The other [C] night dear, as I lay sleeping [C7]
I dreamed I [F] held you in my [C] arms [C7]
But when I a[F] woke, dear, I was mis[C]taken [Am]
So I [C]hung my [G7] head and I [C] cried. [G7]

You are my [C] sunshine, my only sunshine [C7]
You make me [F] happy when skies are [C] gray [C7]
You'll never [F] know dear, how much I [C] love you
[Am] Please don't [C] take my [G7] sunshine a- [C] way

I'll always [C] love you and make you happy, [C7]
If you will [F] only say the [C] same. [C7]
But if you [F] leave me and love a- [C] nother [Am]
You'll [C] regret it [G7] all some- [C] day]

Chorus
You are my [C] sunshine, my only sunshine [C7]
You make me [F] happy when skies are [C] gray [C7]
You'll never [F] know dear, how much I [C] love you
[Am] Please don't [C] take my [G7] sunshine a- [C] way

You told me [C] once, dear, you really loved me [C7]
And no one [F] else could come bet- [C] ween. [C7]
But not you've [F] left me and love ano- [C] ther [Am]
You have [C] shattered [G7] all of my [C] dreams.

Chorus
You are my [C] sunshine, my only sunshine [C7]
You make me [F] happy when skies are [C] gray [C7]
You'll never [F] know dear, how much I [C] love you

Lucille
Kenny Rogers (Roger Bowling & Hal Bynum, 1977)


3/4 | d - D - D - |
      1   2   3

In a | [A] bar in To- | ledo, a- | cross from the | depot,
on a | [A] barstool she | took off her | [E7] ring | [E7]
I | [Bm] thought I'd get | closer so | [E7] I walked on | over,
I | [Bm] sat down and | [E7] asked her | [A] name | [A]

When the | [A] drinks finally | hit her,
she | [A] said "I'm no | quitter,
but I | [A] finally quit | [A7] livin' on | [D] dreams | [D]
I'm | [E7] hungry for | laughter,
and | [E7] here ever | after,
I'm | [E7] after what- | ever the | other life | [A] brings

| [A] In the | mirror I | saw him, and | I closely | watched him
I | [A] thought how he | looked out of | [E7] place | [E7]
He | [Bm] came to the | women who | [E7] sat there be- | side me,
he | [Bm] had a strange | [E7] look on his | [A] face | [A]

The | [A] big hands were | calloused,
he | [A] looked like a | mountain
for a | [A] minute I | [A7] thought I was | [D] dead | [D]
But | [E7] he started | shakin',
his | [E7] big heart was | breakin',
he | [E7] turned to the | woman and | [A] said, | [A↓]

Chorus
You picked a | [nc] fine time to | leave me, Lu- | [D] cille, | [D]
| [D] with | four hungry | children and a | crop in the | [A] field | [A]
| [D] I've had some | bad times,
| [D] lived through some | sad times,
but | [D] this time your | hurtin' won't | [A] heal | [A]
You picked a | [E7] fine time to | leave me, Lu- | [A] cille | [A] | [A] | [A]

| [A] After he | left us, I | ordered more | whiskey,
I | [A] thought how she'd | made him look | [E7] small | [E7]
From the | [Bm] lights of the | bar room to a | [E7] rented ho- | tel room,
we | [Bm] walked without | [E7] talkin' at | [A] all | [A]
| [A] She was a | beauty, but | when she came | to me,
she | [A] must have thought | [A7] I'd lost my | [D] mind | [D]
| [E7] I couldn't | hold her,
'cause the | [E7] words that he | told her
kept | [E7] comin' back | time after | [A] time | [A↓]

Chorus
You picked a | [nc] fine time to | leave me, Lu- | [D] cille,
| [D] with | four hungry | children and a | crop in the | [A] field | [A]
| [D] I've had some | bad times,
| [D] lived through some | sad times,
but | [D] this time your | hurtin' won't | [A] heal | [A]
You picked a | [E7] fine time to | leave me, Lu- | [A] cille | [A↓]

Chorus
You picked a | [nc] fine time to | leave me, Lu- | [D] cille,
| [D] with | four hungry | children and a | crop in the | [A] field | [A]
| [D] I've had some | bad times,

[G↓] [G↓] [G↓] [G↓]
[G] Underneath the lantern, [D7] by the barrack gate
[D7] Darling I remember, the way you used to [G] wait
'Twas [C] there that you whispered [G] tenderly
That [D7] you loved me, you'd [C] always [G] be
My [Am7] Lilli [D7] of the [G] lamplight
My [D7] own Lili Mar- [G] lene [D7]

[G] Time would come for roll call, [D7] time for us to part
[D7] Darling I'd caress you, and press you to my [G] heart
And [C] there 'neath that far-off [G] lantern light
I'd [D7] hold you tight, we'd [C] kiss good- [G] night
My [Am7] Lili [D7] of the [G] lamplight
My [D7] own Lili Mar- [G] lene [D7]

[G] Orders came for sailing, [D7] somewhere over there
[D7] All confined to barracks, was more than I could [G] bear
I [C] knew you were waiting [G] in the street
I [D7] heard your feet, but [C] could not [G] meet
My [Am7] Lili [D7] of the [G] lamplight
My [D7] own Lili Mar- [G] lene [D7]

[G] Resting in our billet [D7] just behind the line,
[D7] Even though we're parted, your lips are close to [G] mine
You [C] wait where that lantern [G] softly gleams,
Your [D7] sweet face seems, to [C] haunt my [G] dreams
My [Am7] Lili [D7] of the [G] lamplight
My [D7] own Lili Mar- [G] lene
My [Am7] Lili [D7] of the [G] lamplight
My [D7] own Lili Mar- [G↓] lene
