[Verse]
Going
through life the, righteous way The
only way so the preacher would say You
put me on the Jericho road Barefoot
and smiling standing, there by the piano [Chorus]

Well
I dreamed I heard that whippoorwill sing Yeah
she sang my song and called me by name Yeah
I hung my head in shame Oh, yeah [Verse]

You
sewed my years together like a pachtwork quilt Your
Bougainvillea's bloom It'll, never wilt The
lessons I remember and some that I forgot Are
precious and pure now like, the one honeysuckle drop [Chorus]

Well
I dreamed I heard that whippoorwill sing Yeah
she sang my song and called me by name Well
I hung my head in shame Oh, yeah [Bridge]

I'm
wanna sing my song with the whippoorwill In
a sweet high harmony Though
I know just what went with her She's
always here with me Always
here with me [Chorus

x2] Well
I dreamed I heard that whippoorwill sing Yeah
she sang my song and called me by name Well
I dreamed I heard that whippoorwill sing Yeah
she sang my song and called me by name [Outro]

Starting
all over again Yes
I'm starting all over again
