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 a 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

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 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
sponsored links
I’d make a wish for sunshine all the while

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
Sunshine almost all the time makes me high
Sunshine almost always

Words by John Denver, Music by John Denver, Dick Kniss and Mike Taylor

John Denver at his best | Reviewer: JohnJ | 8/26/13

Sunshine on my shouulders is the first song I heared of John Denver and it made me a fervent and lifetime fan... I have every track he ever recorded and play them almost on a daily basis, his loss was a loss to all music.

Stout performance | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/27/09

SOMS is a powerful ballad that truly catches John at his best. His playing and singing is as pure on this track as at any other time in his brilliant career. It is truly a shame that this, and so many other of his songs go unheard and unplayed because he can't be inserted into a particular genre.
