Ron Hynes – Sonnys Dream chords
The chorus is actually played after each verse but i was way too lazy to type it up that many times. So remember to play it after each verse. These are definitely the correct chords. Standard tuning- E-A-D-G-B-eC Sonny lives on a farm on a wide open spaceF CWhere you can take off your sneakers and give up the raceGYou could lay down your head by a sweet river bedF C GBut Sonny always remembers what it was his Mama saidThe chords are the same throughout, but ill list them again in the chorus for timing references. thank you, michael 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 yearsCcho: Oh, Sonny don't go away, I am here all aloneF C And your daddy's a sailor who never comes homeG And the nights get so long and the silence goes onF C G And I'm feeling so tired, I'm not all that strongAnd 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 This is a great song by a newfie named Ron Hynes, the man of a thousand songs. There is several versions of sonnys dream, but Ron Hynes wrote it. originally with the title "whos the father of that son that looks so much like me".. enjoy ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byQBsH-iQQs to watch Ron Hynes perform.
