Silver Dew On The Bluegrass Tonight    (1945)

The moon was softly shining on an old Kentucky home
The fragrance of magnolias 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 blue grass 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 blue grass 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 blue grass tonight
While I pray you'll come safe through the fight
Close your eyes and think of me
Then, my darling, you will see
Silver dew on the blue grass tonight
