Silver Dew On The Bluegrass Tonight
Recorded by Bob Wills vocalist Tommy Duncan
Written by Ed Burt

The moon was softly shining
      F            D7    
On an old Kentucky home
    G7                               C   
The fragrance of magnolia filled the air
A lonely girl was writing
       F                     D7        
To her sweetheart 'cross the foam
    G7                           C     
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
      F                 D7   
How I wish that I could see
       G7                     C     
Silver dew on the bluegrass tonight
Stars of gold on the old flag tonight
While you fight for the cause that is right
You will keep that flag on high
          F                  D7   
For those boys who've had to die
         G7                     C     
Stars of gold on the old flag tonight
Silver dew on the bluegrass tonight
While I pray you'll come safe through the fight
Close your Eyes and think of me
       F                D7   
And my darling you will see
       G7                     C     
Silver dew on the bluegrass tonight
