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
