SONNY'S DREAM (Ron Hines) Ron Hynes, Mary Black, John McDermott, Valdy, Christy Moore, Emmylou Harris etc. Sonny lives on a farm ... on a wide open space Where you can take off your sneakers and give up the race You could lay down your head ... by a sweet river bed But Sonny always remembers ... what it was his Mama said Sonny carries a load ... though he's barely a man There ain't all that to do still he does what he can And he watches the sea ... from a room by the stairs And the waves keep on rollin they've done that for years Oh, Sonny don't go away ... I am here all alone And your daddy's a sailor who never comes home And the nights get so long ... and the silence goes on And I'm feeling so tired I'm not all that strong And it's a hundred miles to town Sonny's never been there And he goes to the highway and stands there and stares And the mail comes at four ... and the mailman is old Oh, but he still dreams his dreams full of silver and gold Sonny's dreams can't be real ... they're just stories he's read They're just stars in his eyes they're just dreams in his head And he's hungry inside ... for the wide world outside And I know I can't hold him ... though I've tried and I've tried Oh, Sonny don't go away ... I am here all alone And your daddy's a sailor who never comes home And the nights get so long ... and the silence goes on And I'm feeling so tired I'm not all that strong Oh, Sonny don't go away ... I am here all alone And your daddy's a sailor who never comes home And the nights get so long ... and the silence goes on And I'm feeling so tired I'm not all that strong (Contributed by =a= - August 2010)
