Sunshine Baby was not originally intended to be released. It was the first song that was recorded for equipment testing purposes in Jimmy Strickler's new recording studio. There is a long story surrounding the song that turned out to be one of the World Famous Johnsons most popular.


Just like a movie I felt it there
Out of the shadows a godless fair
Heart was so empty beat got crossed
Took what was needed
Took what was needed
Evil things on the dance floor
Bad things
Bad things
I lost my sunshine baby I lost my sunshine
Just like the night faded away
Soul was empty and couldn't stay
Looking back never learned
It was leav'n
It was leaving
