        D	                G 
ANOTHER DAY IS AT END  
A		     D 
MAMA SAYS SHE'S TIRED AGAIN  
D	     Am	            G      A 
NO ONE CAN EVEN BEGIN TO TELL HER  

D	                            G 
I HARDLY KNOW WHAT TO SAY  
A		             D 
BUT MAYBE IT'S BETTER THAT WAY  
D	       Am	  	    G       A 
IF PAPA WERE HERE I'M SURE HE'D TELL HER    

(Chorus) 

D	   G	       D		       C-G 
SHANNON IS GONE I HOPE SHE'S DRIFTING OUT TO SEA  
D	    G	                   A 
SHE ALWAYS LOVED TO SWIM AWAY 
D	      G	               D		        G 
MAYBE SHE'LL FIND AN ISLAND WITH A SHADY TREE 
D	      G	       Bm	G 
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 SHADY TREE  
JUST LIKE THE ONE IN OUR BACKYARD    
JUST LIKE THE ONE IN OUR BACKYARD
