U R My Sunshine ~ at a bit faster pace

Sometimes I feel like playing it this way. I love this old song whether done fast or slow. Sometimes the lyics are true, but for the most part, we need to make our selves happy and not rely on others to do the job.

1940 Song by Jimmie Davis, 2 time governor of Louisiana.

Thanks for the inspiration Uncle John - imagine I’m singing not playing the harp. Hmm...

Comment by Uncle John on June 1, 2019 at 5:44pm

Thanks, Joe.  That's my fave guitar.  I can't tap my foot to the beat very well, but playing harp has got to be almost as natural as singing - at least on simpler melodies.

Great tone on the guitar - goes well with the song. I can walk and chew bubble gum at the same time but I have yet to master the harp and playing as well as you do. Great show, Uncle John!
