8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Day is ending, Birds are wending,
Back to the shelter of, Each little nest they love.
Night shades falling, Love birds calling,
What makes the world go 'round? Nothing but love!
When Whippoorwills call, And ev'ning is nigh,
I hurry to my blue heaven.
A turn to the right, A little white light,
Will lead you to my blue heaven.
You'll see a smiling face, a fireplace, a cozy room,
A little nest that's nestled where the roses bloom.
Just Mollie and me, And Baby makes three.
We're happy in my blue heaven.
