Morgane and Chris Stapleton's version of "You Are My Sunshine" is a hauntingly gorgeous.

Last Thursday, Chris and Morgane Stapleton performed their version of the beloved folk song “You Are My Sunshine” off of the Southern Family compilation album on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Enjoy the insanely talented couple rocking the stage below!

It’s easy to see why Chris Stapleton recently snagged the CMA award for ‘Best Male Vocalist’ for the second consecutive year. Morgane often backs her husband’s vocals or duets with him on stage. We absolutely love their chemistry and really, really hope they release a duets album at some point.

“You Are My Sunshine” Lyrics

The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
And I hung my head and cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

I’ll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me to love another
You’ll regret it all some day

You told me once, dear, you really loved me
And no one else could come between
But now you’ve left me and love another
You have shattered all my dreams

Be sure to share this live performance with other fans of the Stapletons!
