Whippoorwills call, evenin’ is nigh
Hurry to my Blue Heaven
Turn to the right, there’s a little white light
Will lead you to my Blue Heaven
You’ll see a smilin’ face, a fireplace, a cozy room
Little nest that nestles where the roses bloom
Molly and me, and the baby makes three
We’re happy in my, in my Blue Heaven

The song was published in 1927 and became a huge 1928 hit for crooner Gene Austin, when its was charted for 26 weeks, stayed at #1 for 13, and sold over five million copies. 1
