Hoagy Carmichael – Ole Buttermilk Sky lyrics

Ole buttermilk sky
I'm a-keeping my eye peeled on you
What's the good word tonight
Are you gonna be mellow tonight?

Ole buttermilk sky
Can't you see my little donkey and me?
We're as happy as a Christmas tree
Headin' for the one I love

I'm gonna pop her the question, that question
Do you, darling do you, do?
It'll be easy, so easy
If I can only bank on you

Ole buttermilk sky
I'm a-tellin' you why, now you know
Keep it in mind tonight
Keep a-brushin' those clouds from sight

Ole buttermilk sky
Dont'cha fail me when I'm needin' you most
Hang a moon above her hitchin' post
Hitch me to the one I love

I'm gonna pop her the question, that question
Do you, darling do you, do?
It'll be easy, so easy
If I can only bank on you

Ole buttermilk sky
I'm a-tellin' you why, now you know
Keep it in mind tonight
Keep a-brushin' those clouds from sight

Ole buttermilk sky
Dont'cha fail me when I'm needin' you most
Hang a moon above her hitchin' post
Hitch me to the one I love

You can, if you try, don't tell me no lie
Will you be mellow and bright tonight, ole buttermilk sky?
