I recall once again a song about the whippoorwill and again I can remember only some lines of the song.Those are .......U shall meet her       Though it be where the angels sweetly sing She is mine and the thought of her is sweeter    When it's time for the ?whippoorwill to sing. Could someone please find the complete lyrics. I Do know the melody!

from Bluegrasslyrics.com

Oh the stars and the silver moon is shining
All around is the sweetness of the spring
But I'm sad and in loneliness I'm pining
For the one I know I'll never see again

   How I long for the day when I shall see her
   If it be where the angels sweetly sing
   She is mine and the thought of her grows sweeter
   When it's time for the whippoorwill to sing

When I left with the thought I'd be returning
Soon to her with the wealth and joy I'd bring
I returned but too late and now I'm yearning
She is gone and in loneliness I sing

I remember the night she made the promise
And these words said to me great joy did bring
I'll be true and you know you'll find me waiting
When it's time for the whippoorwill to sing

How nice.   I like it when people sing songs and don't just discuss origins and who recorded them.

I've always loved singing.I have dozens{hundreds maybe} of songs in my head ans I know very few with complete lyrics though I could find many on the computer.I used to belong to a song circle which was great fun, but it folded.I do attend local live music performances and have attended many Canadian and American folk festivals.Music, especially folk, blues, country and bluegrass is a central part of my life. Unfortunately I was never able to perform well on an instrument.
