Singing is tricky for beginners but keep going! The key is to figure out what word to sing on the chord change. On this song the singing starts before the the first C strum. Its: you are my SUN (C 8 beats) shine my only sunshine you make me HAPPY (F 4 beats) when skies are GREY (C 4 beats) you’ll never KNOW (F 4 beats) dear how much I LOVE (C 4 beats) you please don’t TAKE (C 2 beats) my SUN (G 2 beats) shine aWAY(C 4 beats)
