The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – Whippoorwill lyrics

(Piano & guitar intro)

Fast asleep in the garden

The rain is gone away

Somewhere in the margin

Are sheep that's gone astray

Like the old man of the ocean

Whose eyes tells where he's been

Or one who lacks devotion

Betrays his love again

The thief will surely die

When he's taken all he can steal

Oh whippoorwill

Are you high upon your hill

While my feet are on the ground

Oh whippoorwill

You make my heart stand still

When I hear your evening sound

(Piano & strings)

I know you're sad, much deeper

Then my human ears can hear

You never had a keeper

Cause you live where no man's near

You call from out the timber

Like a chanter on a throne

Only to remember

The secret still unknown

And makes us to decide

Are we false or are we real

Oh whippoorwill

Are you high upon your hill

While my feet are on the ground

Oh whippoorwill

You make my heart stand still

When I hear your evening sound

When I hear your evening sound

When I hear your evening sound
