Words to "In Hush of the Evening"

In hush of the evening, when sunset shadows climb,
Our hearts, Winnebago, beat in time.
While still rememb'ring the joys we knew,
The lake, the cry of a lonely loon,
Our hearts, Winnebago, reflect the golden view
That someday the future will hold for you.
As we reminisce, tho years may swiftly fly,
The flame in our hearts never die.
