Ole Buttermilk Sky, I'm keeping my eye peeled on you,
What's the good word tonight? Are you gonna be mellow tonight?
Ole Buttermilk Sky, Can't you see my little donkey and me?
We're as happy as a Christmas tree, Headin' for the one I love.
I'm gonna pop 'er the question, that question,
"Do you, darlin', do you do"?
It'll be so easy, so easy, If I can only bank on you.
Ole Buttermilk Sky, I'm telling you why; now you know.
Keep it in mind tonight,
Keep a-brushing those clouds from sight.
Ole Buttermilk Sky, Don't you fail me when I'm needin' you most.
Hang a moon above her hitching post;
Hitch me to the one I love.
You can if you try, Don't tell me no lie.
Will you be mellow and bright tonight, Buttermilk Sky?
