The King of Whippoorwill Bay

There's a dirt road town on the coast of Carolina
I spent my childhood playing In the cane
The world was big and living was easy then
Growing up in the town of whippoorwill bay

I fell in love the day that I turned seventeen
With a boy who told me tales of far away
He took my heart in the sand on a summer night
And he became the king of the whippoorwill bay

But he loved me like a wanderer loves his train
Too alone to leave me, too alone to stay
He left on a Sunday morning, headed west they say
But that boy who stole my heart, will always be a part of me
He'll always be the king of the whippoorwill bay

I followed him as far as the county line
And through my tears I begged for him to stay
But silent as a prayer, he hung up his crown
Never to return to whippoorwill bay

But he loved me like a wanderer loves his train
Too alone to leave me, too alone to stay
He left on a Sunday morning, headed west they say
But that boy who stole my heart, will always be a part of me
He'll always be the king of the whippoorwill bay

It's been eight years since he left me by the water
Now I love a man who never ran away
as I stand here in the town I once loved so much
I think back to the king of the whippoorwill bay

But he loved me like a wanderer loves his train
Too alone to leave me, too alone to stay
He left on a Sunday morning, headed west they say
But that boy who stole my heart, will always be a part of me
He'll always be the king of the whippoorwill bay
