You Are My Sunshine | Free Printable

Hi everyone! Today I have a really great printable for you to enjoy and it’s totally FREE! Can I get a woot-woot for that?! — WOOT-WOOT!

So, the story behind this printable is that every single night my daughter requests a song for me to sing with her and for the last 2 months or so, it has been “You Are My Sunshine.” I am waiting for the day she realizes I’m tone-deaf and wants a book read to her instead, but for the time being she still likes my singing voice. 😀

I decided to create a really great subway-style printable that I could frame in her room, as well as use as a scrapbook page about bedtime and the special time we spend together singing her song.

I had the 12×12 page printed at Costco ($2.99) and inserted it in the frame I already had and now she has this great artwork in her room that she loves to point out to all of our house guests.

The Sunshine Printable is available as an 8×10 or as a 12×12, so the possibilities are endless! Have fun with it and if you decide to download it and use it somewhere, I would love if you would share a photo of how you used it on our Facebook page.

Just right click on the image below, save it, and print! Super easy!

  1. That is so cute, Courtney! I am going to print it out right now!

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi! Can you send me a 4×6 version of this? I want to hand it out at Thursday night camp but the 8×10 requires cropping and cuts out too much. 🙁 I sent a message on FB but I’m not sure which one you will see first. By the time you see this, I will be at Girls Camp. I listed my husband’s email address so he can receive and upload it to costco and send it up to me. If you could resize that, I would really appreciate it! Our theme is LOL- Lovers of Light and the light source we chose (stake) is Sun (which also has double meaning as “The Son”). This subway art would be a neat touch for the final night when we sing an edited version of You are my Sunshine with verses changed to fit the Arise and shine forth theme. Thanks so much for your help!!

    Is there any way that the word sunshine be changed to sunrise? My baby sister loves it when I sing this song with her name in place of sunshine.

  4. Susan says:

    I’d love the 4 x 6 or a 5 x 7 size, ,too! Perfect size to set on a dresser, shelf, etc. Thanks!

  5. Fonda says:

    Looooove this!! THANK YOU!!!!

  6. Thank you so much! I cant wait to print this and hang it on my little girl’s wall! I sing this song to her all the time, and my mom use to sing it to me, and my brother and sisters, when we were little. Also, her room is yellow and gray! I love it!

  7. Andi says:

    Courtney – thank you SO much, I had already decided to send my friend in Missouri a Box of Sunshine ( for her birthday in November (I live in Florida, the Sunshine State) so I’m going to frame your printable and include it in her box. Perfect! She’s going to love it.

  8. Mary Ramirez says:

    This is wonderful and just in time to add to my freshly painted living room wall. Any chance you have it in 5 x7?

  9. lisa says:

    This was one of my mom’s favorite songs and will always be a special song for me. I have been wanting to have something like this, but had found anything. so thank you for sharing. Do you have Amazing Grace by chance that was her other song.

    Thank you

  10. Heather says:

    Hi! I love this printout! I also used the twinkle twinkle printout as well. I made them into hanging wall canvasas and plan on hanging them in my sons playroom! I am so thrilled at how they came out! I’d love to share my pic, but I couldn’t figure out how to upload my pic here! Thanks for the cute printouts!!!!!

  11. Kim says:

  13. Peggy says:

    I love, love, love this. Is there any way to change the colors for my granddaughters room? Thank you so much.

  14. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

  15. Tori says:

    Thanks so much for making this FREE! It’s lovley and is the final touch to our babies room 🙂

  16. MARY says:


  17. I sing this song to me little girl ever day… since she was born and would love to put it in her room….but I would like the colors changed to Pink, Light Blue and Light Yellow. I have my ruffled ribbon socks on etsy and thought we could exchange work if you have a little girl. It is Gracie LaRae’s Boutique.



  18. samantha coalter says:

    Hi! I LOVE this printable, it’s the song I’ve always sang to my babies!!!! But….I cannot get it to cooperate as a download! Would you mind sending it to me in a 4×6 version? I would be sooooo grateful!


  19. Inez says:

    Hi Courtney,

    THank you, I plan on using this as part of baby shower decor

  20. Yellow is my favorite color and this is awesome…thanks for sharing.

  21. Thank you so much! This was my grandma’s favorite song and is a special way to keep her close when I sing it to my baby boy. I’ve been wanting to get this wall art for his room and this is perfect!

  22. Amber says:

    Great idea. Thanks for sharing your talent with us. I like to end the song with “and I love you more everyday” instead of please don’t take my sunshine away. Any chance you would be able to make that switch for me and my little girl?

  23. Kate says:

    Thank you so much for this!

    My Mum always sang this to me when I was little! I’m going to print and frame it and give it to her as a present. I’m sure it’ll bring a tear to her eye!

    Thanks again 🙂

  24. deb says:

    We had this song at our wedding 30 years ago. I now sing it with my granddaughters ages 2 & 6 in the car when we r traveling. i plan to copy & put in my sunroom! Thx!

  25. Lorrie says:

    Thanks so much for sharing this adorabl print! I will hang it in my new kitchen… I always sing it to my kids, grandkids, and husband… Love it!

  26. maureen says:

    My three year old Grandson (just turned 3) sings this song. It was a song my Mom used to always sing and my daughter bought me one of those black and white signs with these words on it to hang on the wall. My grandson one day was sitting next to me and all of sudden started singing this song! Brought tears to my eyes thinking of my Mom who passed away. When I saw this post I knew I had to print it off! How timely! Thank You!

  27. Jacki says:

    I love this! Have been looking for kid song lyrics to hang in my kids’ toy room. I suggest you make “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “Row Row Row Your Boat”. I would definitely hang those along with “you are my sunshine” and “twinkle twinkle” that you have. Thanks!

  28. lemondedis says:

    j’adore !… je cherche des freebies sur le Net pour les partager, pour l’instant sur Pinterest (où j’ai déjà plus de 13000 liens vers des téléchargements gratuits), en attendant l’ouverture de mon propre site, et je vais vite poster le lien pour que tout le monde puisse télécharger et utiliser votre jolie création !… merci pour le partage, Is… (si vous voulez voir ce que je fais, c’est là : )

  29. Missy says:

    Thanks for sharing this adorable printable and your talents with us!!! I am printing it and using it as baby shower decor then giving it to the Mommy-to-Be. 🙂

  30. Laura says:

    Thank you so much for this beautiful printable. I have been singing this song to my grand daughter since she was born, she is 5 now and loves it! This printable will definitely make her smile.

  31. Bianca says:

    This is just gorgeous! I am at the beginning of opening my small online children decor business. Would it be ok to print and have this for re-sell? I’m a little ignorant in the legal scheme of things. Hope it is, I think it would be a hit!!
    Thanks 🙂

  32. I cannot believe people are so rude to ask you to make another size for them. Ladies, do it yourself or use what she has already made!!! Courtney has taken lots of time now and in asking her to do more and more is really rude and not very thankful for what she has already done! I’m just saying….
    Courtney, thank you for this beautiful piece and so many others. I appreciate your hard work. God has blessed your hands and it is wonderful to see your kindness to bless others with them now. Thank you, Debi

  33. Julie says:

    Aww love this my husband sings this to me every night before we go to bed (we can’t even remember why it started) and now we sing it too our two young kids every night before bed. We live in Scotland and I’ve had this fab printable made into a acrylic for the playroom and it looks fab!

    Sorry I don’t know how to post a pic to you’re facebook page but Thanks again x

  34. Kyla says:

    LOVE this! Thank you so much! Working on my the nursery for our new baby girl and going with a “You are My Sunshine” theme. This is absolutely perfect for it. Now I am looking for a vintage wood frame to put this in and I will paint it white or possibly yellow! You have made my day!!!!!!!

  35. Joyce Capardo says:

    Thanks for this! My children will love it!!!

  36. Jenn Gomez says:

    Thank you so much for making this and for making it available for a free. It is just what I want to hang in my daughter’s room.

  37. Barbs says:

    Thank u so much I’ve sung you are my sunshine to my granddaughter Hannah since she was born she is now 3 and knows all the words. It is Our song.

  38. Heya great blog! Does running a blog like this
    take a lot of work? I have virtually no knowledge of computer programming but I had been hoping to
    start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please
    share. I know this is off subject but I just had to ask.
    Thank you!

  39. Kristine Esponoza says:

    I sang this song to my daughter for years and now she is expecting her first baby in January. This is perfect. Thanks so much!!!

  40. Thank you so much for sharing.. I almost didnt open this email right away but something was drawing me to do it and when I did I started crying. My momma used to sing this to me and then to my older boys. I lost my momma in 2002 and I would do anything to hear her sing to me again whether she could sing or not so just remember that when you sing to your little girl, She will only remember her mommy singing to her not how you sounded!!!!

    • We’re so sorry about the loss of your mother, but what a wonderful memory you have of her. Hopefully this printable will help you cherish that memory forever. Hugs to you. 🙂

  41. Tonia O'Donnell says:

    Im so happy I found this!!!
    You are my sunshine is a special lil song shared between my mother and daughter. We have the song painted in our house in black grey and yellow, the same colors as this. We will be printing this up for my mother to hang in her house.
    Thank you so much.
