Shadows of the Wildwood

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

Out in the west where skies are blue,

A tiny spot I knew

Is calling from the shadows of the wildwood.

And there’s an ivy-covered shack.

A wishing well in back

Is hidden in the shadows of the wildwood.

There in the window is a candlelight shining, you see,

And by the fireside a true heart is pining for me.

There I will live forevermore.

An angel by the door

Is waiting in the shadows of the wildwood.

 

There in the window is a candlelight shining, you see,

And by the fireside a true heart is pining for me.

There I will live forevermore.

An angel by the door

Is waiting in the shadows of the wildwood.

 

(Bob wrote an unrecorded introductory verse as well: )

 

Longing, longing, dreams come thronging,

Old songs fill the air.

Singing, ringing, twilight’s bringing

Thoughts I can hardly bear.
