Maybe it'd be better to add this as lyrics because they're written in proper Cherokee writing - while the 'original lyrics' here seem to be a Transliteration. Do you agree?

I agree :-)

It's been done. You may want to correct this into a transliteration. If you want, I still have the romanization:

And when the whippoorwill
Does lie suddenly still
Hieeya wohali

Ja Li He Li Gv
Tsi Yv Wi Ya
Ge Sv I
(2x)

Wado
U Ne Tlv Nv Hi
Wado
U Ne Tlv Nv Hi

Ja Li He Li Gv
Tsi Yv Wi Ya
Ge Sv I

(repeating)

And when the whippoorwill
Does lie suddenly still
Hieeya... wohali…

And when the whippoorwill
Does lie suddenly still
