Bobby Hebb (echte naam: Robert von Hebb) was een Amerikaanse jazz-sinter-songwriter die in Nashville geboren werd en daar ook stierf.

Hebbs ouders waren allebei blinde muzikanten. Bobby treedt al op 3-jarige leeftijd op, samen met zijn 9-jarige broer Harold. Die broer wordt in 1963 doodgestoken. Daarna begint Bobby jazznummers te schrijven.

Zijn bekendste nummer Sunny schopt het in 1966 tot de tweede plaats in de Top 40 (achter Little Man van Sonny & Cher). Het zou nog vaak worden gecoverd, onder anderen door Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Boney M en Frank Sinatra.

In 2005 verschijnt zijn laatste album That's All I Wanna Know.


Songtekst

BOBBY HEBB - SUNNY

Sunny
Yesterday my life was filled with rain
Sunny
You smiled at me and really eased the pain

Now, the dark days are gone
And the bright days are here
My Sunny one shines so sincere
Sunny, one so true, I love you

Sunny
Thank you for the sunshine bouquet
Sunny
Thank you for the love you brought my way

You gave to me your all and all
And now I feel ten feet tall
Sunny, one so true, I love you

Sunny
Thank you for the truth you let me see
Sunny
Thank you for the facts from A to Z

My life was torn
Like a wind-blown sand
And a rock was formed
When you held my hand
Sunny, one so true, I love you

Sunny
Thank you for that smile upon your face
Sunny
Thank you, thank you for that gleam that flows with grace

You're my spark of nature's fire
You're my sweet complete desire
Sunny, one so true, yes, I love you

Sunny
Yesterday, oh, my life was filled with rain
Sunny
You smiled at me and really, really eased the pain

Now, the dark days are gone
And the bright days are here
My Sunny one shines so sincere
Sunny, one so true, I love you

I love you (Sunny)
I love you (Sunny)
I love you (Sunny)

You smiled at me and then it eased my pain

Now the dark days are gone
And the bright days are here
My Sunny, once shines sincere

Thank you for the sunshine you gave to me
Sunny
Thank you for the love you brought my way

You gave to me your all and all
And now I feel that I'm ten feet tall

Sunny, once so true
I love you

Sunny
Thank you for the truth you let me see
Sunny
Thank you for the facts from A to Z

Somehow I was torn like a wind blown sail
Then our love was born when you held my hand

Sunny once so true
I love you

Sunny
Thank you for the sunshine you gave to me
Sunny
Thank you for the love you brought my way

You gave to me your all and all
And now I feel that I'm ten feet tall

Sunny, once so true
I love you

I love you
I love you
I love you
