"Shadow Land" as written by and Bob Mcdill....
Everytime the tide comes in the tide goes out
Some folks fail some do alright
You could take a john boat 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
[BRIDGE:]
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 stay 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
