THE WHIPPOORWILL SONG|
All the stars and the silvery moon are shining.
All around is the sweetness of the spring,
But I'm sad, and in loneliness I'm pining
For the one that I'll never see again.
I remember the night she made this promise
How I long for the day when I shall meet her
Though it be when the angels sweetly sing.
I'll be true and you know you'll find me waiting.
When it's time for the whippoorwills to sing.
And these words to me great joy did bring,
"I'll be true, and you know you'll find me waiting
When it's time for the whippoorwills to sing."
