Shannon
Henry Gross Lyrics


Another day's at end
Mama says she's tired again
No one can even begin to tell her
I hardly know what to say
But maybe it's better that way
If poppa were here I'm sure he'd tell her

Shannon is gone I heard
She's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our backyard

Mama tries hard to pretend
That things will get better again
Somehow she's keepin' it all inside her

But finally the tears fill our eyes
And I know that somewhere tonight
She knows how much we really miss her

Shannon is gone I heard
She's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our back yard
Ah
Just like the one in our back yard
Ah

DuckDuckGo IsMuchBetter

The way I look at it, and have looked at it since I was literally your age, (1) if a song is "new to me", it is new, and (2) who cares if it's new? Music is not like technology, wherein "newer is usually better".

Music is "nourishment for the soul", just like food is nourishment for the body.

We ate cheeseburgers, and steaks and fried chicken a hundred years ago. They're classics. They don't go out of style. And they aren't likely to. And people don't eat based on what is in style. They eat what they're hungry for!

If you're hungry for this kind of music, and you want to feed your soul this kind of music, then who cares what the crowd thinks.

I went my own way when I was exactly your age, or younger. I've NEVER regretted it.

Lyrics

Another day is at end
Mama says she's tired again
No one can even begin to tell her
I hardly know what to say
But maybe it's better that way
If Papa were here I'm sure he'd tell her

Shannon is gone, I hope she's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island with a shaded tree
Just like the one in our backyard

Mama tries hard to pretend
Things will get better again
Somehow she's keeping it all inside her
But finally the tears fill our eyes
And I know that somewhere tonight
She knows how much we really miss her

Shannon is gone, I hope she's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island with a shaded tree
Just like the one in our backyard
Just like the one in our backyard

Another day's at end
Mama says she's tired again
No one can even begin to tell her
I hardly know what to say
But maybe it's better that way
If Pop-pa were here I'm sure he'd tell her
Shannon, is gone I heard
She's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island with a shaded tree
Just like the one in our backyard
Mama tries hard to pretend
That things will get better again
Somehow she's keepin' it all inside her
But finally the tears fill our eyes
And I know that somewhere tonight
She knows how much we really miss her
Shannon, is gone I heard
She's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our back yard
Ah, just like the one in our back yard
Ah....
Just like the one in our back yard

Growing up in the 70's was the best. Summer's especially. Gone all day, no cell phones, computers, dvds, just riding bikes, playing outside with kids from all over. What an awesome time to be a kid. Miss them!

David Greminger

So very true. A simpler time.

Vivian Swim

I wish they could come back also. Life was different then. It can come back through music though.
