Dolores Keane - Sonny (Feat. Mary Black & Emmylou Harris)

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 tried, not all that strong

Sonny lives on a farm in a far distant place
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 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 tried, not all that strong

Sonny works all alone, though he's barely a man
There's not much to do, but he does what he can
He sits by his window in his room on the stairs
He watches the waves drifting soft on the pier

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
And he feels so tried, not all that strong

Many years have all gone, Sonny's old and alone
His daddy the sailor never came home
Sometimes he wonders what his life might have been
Still from the grave mammy's voice haunts his dreams

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 tried, not all that strong
Sonny don't go away
