about

I heard Champion Fulton sing Whistling Away the Dark and loved it. It has the kind of story that starts out sad but ends on a hopeful note. Just how I like my songs and then throw in a ¾ time signature and I’m hooked.

lyrics

Often I think this sad old world is whistling in the dark.
Just like a child, who, late from school
Walks bravely home through the park.
To keep their spirits soaring and keep the night at bay.
Neither quite knowing which way they are going,
They sing the shadows away.
Often I think my poor old heart has given up for good.
And then I see a brand new face,
I glimpse some new neighborhood.
So walk me back home, my darling, tell me dreams really come true.
Whistling, whistling, here in the dark with you.
