A Light in the Window

A little child on a sick bed lay
An' death was very near
She was the pride and only child
Of a railway engineer
Duty had called him from th ones that he loved
But he said, before he did go
Just hang a light in th window tonight
Hang it where it may be seen

Just hang a light in th window tonight
Hang it where it may be seen
If our baby's dead then just show th red
If he's better then show th green

In a little shack, by th railroad track
A Mothers watchful eye
She saw a smile an' hope appeared
As the Rattler moved on by,
He just had a moment t' take a glance
But th light he had seen
On th midnight air there arose a prayer
Thank God th light is green

Hang A Light In The Window Tonight, As sung by Tom Aley, Ozark, Missouri on February 8, 1969

Even with just the window section alone this would be a great shot. :)
