When its time for the whippoorwill to sing

In the sky the silvery moon was shining
All around was sweetness of the spring
Now she's gone but thoughts of her grow sweeter
When it's time for the whippoorwill to sing

    How I long for the day when I shall meet her
    If it be where the angels sweetly sing
    She is mine and thoughts of her grow sweeter
    When it's time for the whippoorwill to sing

I remember the night she made the promise
Oh, to me sweet joy these words did bring
Fare thee well and I know you'll find me waiting
When it's time for the whippoorwill to sing
