Shadow Land

This song is by Don Williams and appears on the album Flatlands (1995).

(Bob McDill)

Everytime the tide comes in the tide goes out
Some folks fail some do alright
You could take a Johnboat all the way to town
Had an angry broken father, in a house beside the water.

Chorus:
Shadowland, what secret are you keeping
Are you only sleepin to wake another day
Shadowland, Oh, how could I have loved you
I never really knew you, anyway.

Funny how the stars down there shine so bright
Breeze comes in just like a prayer
Mama asked Jesus to keep daddy home at night
I guess it was a pity, but Jesus never did it.

Chorus:
Shadowland, what secret are you keeping
Are you only sleepin to wake another day
Shadowland, Oh, how could I have loved you
I never really knew you, anyway.

Storms blew up from Mexico,
The boats would all come in
Nights like that you could smell
Salt water on the wind
I was so young back then.

Brother was a gifted child so they said
We could build a starship in the yard
Angry voices came from the house at night
So we'd play a game he made up
And stayed out a little later.

Chorus:
Shadowland, what secret are you keeping
Are you only sleepin to wake another day
Shadowland, Oh, how could I have loved you
I never really knew you, anyway...
