the whippoorwill lyrics – blackberry smoke

the whippoorwill

[verse]
going through life, the righteous way
the only way so the preacher would say
you put me on the jericho road
barefoot and smiling, standing there by the theon road

[chorus]
well i dream that i heard that whippoorwill sing
yeah she sang my song and called me by name
well i hung my head in shame, oh yeah

[verse]
you sold my years together like a pachtwork quilt
you broken veils blooms, and i’ll never will
the lessons i remember and some that i forgot
are precious and pure now, like a 100 circle drive

[chorus]
well i dream that i heard that whippoorwill sing
yeah she sang my song and called me by name
well i hung my head in shame, oh yeah

[bridge]
i’m gonna sing my song with the whippoorwill at
in a sweetheart harmony
though i know just what went with her
she’s always here with me
always here with me

[chorus x2]
well i dream that i heard that whippoorwill sing
yeah she sang my song and called me by name
well i dream that i heard that whippoorwill sing
yeah she sang my song and called me by name

[outro]
starting all over again
yes i’m starting all over again
