That was Louisiana Governor's Jimmie Davis, who wrote the song in 1940; (he also wrote "Nobody's Darlin But Mine", as well as a few more good song's). Jimmie was sadly a liberal and I believe his first stint as Gov. was from '44 - '48 ('44 was also a good year as that's when I made my 1st presence, and at age 6 by the late 40's, I too had listened to radio entertainment as that's all we had, mostly to the good 'ol country music stations in the evenings - the Louisiana Hayride brings back fond memories). Though I can't say when Dobro's were first introduced, "You Are My Sunshine" uses one perfectly in the band!
