Sonny's Dream Guitar Chords    

Sonny's Dream

   Sonny lives on a farm, in a wide open space
                             C          G
   Take off your shoes, stay out of the race
   Lay down your head, on a soft river bed
         C                    G           D
   Sonny always remembers the words Mamma says.
      Sonny don't go away, I'm here all alone
                             C           G
      Your Daddy's a sailor, never comes home,
      Nights are so long, silence goes on,
          C                        G        D
      I'm feeling so tired and not all that strong.
Sonny works on the land, though he's barely a man
There's not much to do but he does what he can
Sits by his window in his room by the stairs
Watching the waves drifting soft on the pier.
Many years have rolled on, Sonny's old and alone
His Daddy the sailor, never came home
Sometimes he wonders what his life might have been
But from the grave Mamma still haunts his dreams.
