Anxious nights give way to daylight
She don't cry and she don't complain
To honor, cherish, protect and keep you
She took your problems and took your name
All she wants is to stroll down the island
She don't care if there's wind or there's rain
Only a woman of her stature could shield you
From the venom of this town's disdain

And she'll wait by your side
She'll never let you out of her sight
And she'll wait by your side,
You're the one thing that matters in her life

As she waits patiently by the window
She knows you'll be coming home soon
She'll sit quiet there and won't go
Her dedication can't be moved
She hears the echoes marching down "A" street
Like footsteps on the cobblestone
A pace too heavy to be her master
They pass her by and she's still alone

And she'll wait by your side
She'll never let you out of her sight
And she'll wait by your side,
You're the one thing that matters in her life

[Chorus:]
Shannon I'm coming home
[x2]

She hears the echoes marching down "A" street
Like footsteps on the cobblestone
A pace too heavy to be her master
They pass her by and she's still alone

And she'll wait by your side
She'll never let you out of her sight
And she'll wait by your side,
You're the one thing that matters in her life

[Chorus:]
Shannon I'm coming home
[x2]

[Chorus:]
Shannon I'm coming home
