SILVER DEW ON THE BLUEGRASS TONIGHT
Recorded by: Denver Darling
Writer: Ed Burt

The moon was softly shining on an old Kentucky home
The fragrance of magnolia filled the air
A lonely girl was writing to her sweetheart 'cross the foam
May God protect you, darling, over there.

Silver Dew On The Bluegrass Tonight
How it shines in the moon's silver light
Soldier boy, so far from me
How I wish that you could see
Silver Dew On The Bluegrass Tonight.

Stars of gold on the old flag tonight
While you fight for a cause that is right
You will keep that flag on high
For those boys who had to die
Stars of gold on the old flag tonight.

Silver Dew On The Bluegrass Tonight
While I pray you'll come safe thru the fight
Close your eyes and think of me
Then, my darling, you will see
Silver Dew On The Bluegrass Tonight.

^^
