Silver Dew on the Bluegrass Tonight (Ed Burt) The moon was softly shining on an old Kentucky home The fragrance of magnolia 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 Bluegrass 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 Bluegrass 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 Bluegrass Tonight While I pray you'll come safe thru the fight Close your eyes and think of me Then, my darling, you will see Silver Dew On The Bluegrass Tonight.
