  • 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 Writer/s: DOUGLAS M. JOHNSON
