Sonny lives on a farm, in the wide open space
You can kick off your sneekers, and give up the race
You can lay your self down, by a sweet river bed
Sonny always remembers, what it was his moma said

Chorus

Sonny don't go away, I am here all alone
And your daddy's a sailor, and he 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

Sonny caries a load, He is barely a man
There's not all that much to do, still he does the best he can
And he lives in a room, at the top of the stairs
And the sea keeps on rollin in it's done that for years

Chorus

Sonny don't go away, I am here all alone
And your daddy's a singer, and he 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

Towns a hundred miles away Sonny's never been there
He just goes to the highway and he stands there and stares
And the mail comes at four and the mail man is old
Yet he's still dreaming dreams filled with silver and gold

Chorus

Sonny don't go away, I am here all alone
And your daddy's a sailor, and he 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
Sonny don't go away, sonny don't go away
