Sonny, don't go away, I'm here all alone
Daddy's a sailor, he never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
And I'm feelin' so tired, not all that strong

Sonny lives on a farm on a wide open space
Take off your shoes and stay on the race
Lay down your head by the soft river bed
Sonny always remembers the words his mama said

Sonny, don't go away, I'm here all alone
Daddy's a sailor, he never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
I'm feelin' so tired, not all that strong

Sonny works on the land, though he's barely a man
There's not much to do, he just does what he can
He sits by the window of his room on the stairs
Watchin' the waves gently wash down the years

Sonny, don't go away, I'm here all alone
Daddy's a sailor, he never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
And I'm feelin' so tired, not all that strong

Many years have passed on, Sonny's old and alone
His daddy's a sailor, he never came home
Sometimes he wonders what his life might have been
But from the grave, his mama still haunts his dreams

Sonny, don't go away, I'm here all alone
Daddy's a sailor, he never comes home
The nights are so long and the silence goes on
I'm feelin' so tired, not all that strong

Sonny, don't go away, I'm here all alone
Daddy's a sailor, he never comes home
And the nights are so long and the silence goes on
I'm feelin' so tired, not all that strong
Sonny, don't go away
