Sonny's Dream
Valdy Lyrics


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

I don't know what anyone can add to describe Valdy and his talent. I've seen him 3 times and he spoke as if he knew everyone in the club personally. He broke a guitar string and a guy in the club took Valdy to his house to get strings, and he was gone for over an hour. He had a good visit with the guy. I thought that was one awesome move on Valdys part.I  love his guitar playing , and in my opinion , is the best guitar player we have in Canada, Always so damn good.

What a beautiful man. Wish Canada had more singers and song writers like him.

Heading to the 2014 Kemp Shore Acoustic Music festival where we get the privilege of having Valdy attend again this year! What is so great about him and his music is is that he sounds the same on his recordings as he does live! THAT's a Music Man!:)
