burn that candle lyrics – harris emmylou

(winfield scott)

keep that candle burnin’ bright mama
i’ll be kind of late tonight mama
there’s a yellow moon above me mama
shinin’ on the one i love mama.

burn that candle night and day
burn that candle honey light our way
keep that doorway open wide
until we come slowly strollin’ side by side.

while that candle’s shinin’ high mama
i’ll be with my sugar pie mama
we’ll be coming home you know and mama
looking for that candle glowin’ mama.

burn that candle night and day
burn that candle honey light our way
keep that doorway open wide
until we come slowly strollin’ side by side.

— instrumental —

after we have had the weddin’ mama
to that candle we’ll be headin’ mama
so before we’re winin’ and dinin’ mama
keep that candle light a shinin’ mama.

burn that candle night and day
burn that candle honey light our way
keep that doorway open wide
until we come slowly strollin’ side by side.

burn that candle night and day
burn that candle honey light our way
keep that doorway open wide
until we come slowly strollin’ side by side…
