Sonny's Dream Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords, Ron Hynes
I first heard Christy Moore sing this beauty. It later became a Hugh on :Woman's Heart Album with Mary Black. The video is Christy Moore. The sheet music and tin whistle notation are included.

.[D]Sonny don't go away, I'm here all alone,
Your daddy's a sailer [G] never came [D] home,
[A]Nights are so long, silence goes on,
[G]I'm feeling so[D ] tired, not all that [A]strong
 
Sonny lives on a farm,in a wide open space,
Take off your shoes,stay out of the race,
Lay down your head by the soft river bed,
Sonny always remembers the words mammy said.
 
Sonny works on the land,though he's barley a man
There's not much to do,he does what he can,
He sits by the window,of his room by the stairs,
He watches the waves gently wash on the pier.
 
Many years have gone by,Sonny's old and alone,
His daddy the sailor never came home
Sometimes he wanders what his life might have been
But from the grave mammy still haunts his dreams.
[Repeat first verse]

Below is the tin whistle version that I like to play. Nice and easy, that's the way to go.
