Shannon
(Words & Music by Keith Brown)

A pretty little girl who came into this world,
A gift from God above,
Her eyes as dark as night, a smile so warm and bright,
Her hair as dark as coal...

A little girl of five now stands before my eyes,
And I remember...
A little girl of ten, I still can see her when
She came on that September morn.

And I swear to you
That through your laughter, your pain and your strife,
That I'll be there for you, Shannon,
All of the days of my life,
Oh Shannon, sweet child of mine.

As time moves ever on, the things she's said and done
Are in my heart forever,
Still, the day will come in time, I'll wake up just to find
You've gone away, my Shannon...

And I swear to you
That through your laughter, your pain and your strife,
That I'll be there for you, Shannon,
All of the days of my life,
Oh Shannon, sweet child of mine.
