Blackberry Smoke – The Whippoorwill lyrics
[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
