(Winfield Scott)

Keep that candle burnin' bright, mama
I'll be kind of late tonight, mama
There's a yellow moon above me, mama
Shinin' on the one I love, mama
Burn that candle
Night and day
Burn that candle
Honey light our way
Keep that doorway open wide
Until we come slowly strollin' side by side
While that candle's shinin' high, mama
I'll be with my sugar pie, mama

We'll be comin' home you know and mama
Lookin' for that candle glowin', mama
After we have had the wedding, mama
To that candle we'll be headin', mama
So before we're winin' and dinin', mama
Keep that candle light a-shinin', mama
