RHONDA VINCENT lyrics - Song Of A Whippoorwill

RHONDA VINCENT
"Song Of A Whippoorwill"
(Tracy Starling / Rhonda Vincent)

I heard the whippoorwill a singin'
He sang so high and lonesome
So high and lonesome
It brought tears to my eyes

He was searchin' for his sweet love
He'd fly so high above us
So high above us
As the stars filled the sky

His cries would cross the mountain
Echo through the valleys green
He'd fly closer to the heavens
Where his love had gone to be

He sings a song about his sweet love
He sings so high and lonesome
So high and lonesome
It brought tears to my eyes

He keeps searchin' for his true love
She flies so high above us
So high above us
In the sweet by-and-by

[Instrumental]

His cries still cross the mountains
Echo through the valleys green
He flies closer to the heavens
Where his love had gone to be

He keeps searchin' for his true love
She flies so high above us
So high above us
In the sweet by-and-by
