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 piano

Well, I dreamed I heard that whippoorwill sing
Yeah, she sang my song and called me by name
And I hung my head in shame
Oh yeah

You sewed my years together like a patchwork quilt
Your bougainvillea's bloom, it'll never wilt
The lessons I remember and some that I forgot
Are precious and pure, now, like the one honeysuckle drop

Well, I dreamed I heard that whippoorwill sing
Yeah, she sang my song and called me by name
Well, I hung my head in shame, oh yeah...

I'm gonna sing my song with the whippoorwill
In the sweet, high harmony
Though I know just what went with her
She's always here with me
Always here with me

Well, I dreamed I heard that whippoorwill sing
Yeah, she sang my song and called me by name
Well, I dreamed I heard that whippoorwill sing
Yeah, she sang my song and called me by name, oh
Starting all over again
Yes, I'm starting all over again
