Sonny don?t go away I?m here all alone Your daddy?s a sailor never comes home Nights are so long silence goes on I?m feeling so tired and not all that strong
Sonny lives on a farm on a wide open space Take off your shoes stay out of the race Lay down your head by the soft river bed Sonny always remembers the words mammy said
Sonny works the land though he?s barely a man There?s not much to do but he does what he can He sits by the window of his room on the stairs Watching the waves gentle wash on the pier
Many years have passed on sonny?s old and along His daddy the sailor never came home Sometimes he wonders what his life might have been But from the grave mammy still haunts his dream
