Shadow Land
Don Williams
Bob McDill
Album: Flatlands

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

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
