Cry Of The Whippoorwill

Rhonda Vincent




††††††††† †††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††††††††† Now listen close and you can hear

††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††††††††† Their mournful cries ring through the darkness

†††††††† ††††††††††††††G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

††††††††† Lovers lost and all alone; Spirits to forever roam


††† G

1. Like a night birdís wail when the wind is still; The sound of a river and a whippoorwill

2. Itís a bitter wind that sings their song; ĎBout a love so right and yet so wrong

††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

1. Like the driving rain on a roof of tin; Her words of love call out to him

2. And promised hearts where passions dwell; No one can see, no one can tell





††† G

1. In the chill of a night thru the falling show; Two hearts run wild, nowhere to go

2. Souls lost in time, they were never found; Frozen in silence on the cold hard ground

††† G††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

1. Crossing hills and valleys wide; To meet once more on the other side

2. Forever one, forever free; Wrapped in the arms of eternity
