Rhonda Vincent - Cry Of The Whippoorwill lyrics

Banjo Intro:


Now listen close and you can hear
Their mournful cries ring through the darkness
Lovers lost and all alone
Spirits two forever roam

Verse 1:

Like a nightbird's wail when the wind is still
The sound of river and a whippoorwill
Like the driving rain on a roof of tin
Her words of love call out to him

Fiddle Break:

Verse 2:
In the chill of the night through falling snow
Two hearts run wild nowhere to go
Crossing hills and valleys wide
To meet once more on the other side


Guitar/Banjo Break:

Verse 3:
It's a bitter Wind that sings her song
About a love so right and yet so wrong
And promised hearts where passions dwell
No one can see no one can tell

Verse 4:
Souls lost in time they were never found
Frozen in (?solid?) on the cold hard ground
Forever wild forever free
Wrapped in the arms of eternity


Mando/Fiddle Break:


Vocal Ending:

Lovers lost and all alone
Spirits two forever roam
