Watching the Moon Roll By

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing along with Dave Bourne

 

The long day has faded deep in the west,

The stars take their place in the sky.

On soft, feathered wings, the birds seek their nest

While I watch the moon roll by.

 

Evening comes.

A million stars will soon be lighting their way across the sky.

Here in the joy of their smile let me linger awhile,

Watching the moon roll by.

 

Lost on the trail, I roam but he will lead me home.

 

Through the night, when all the world’s at rest,

I’ll travel along and ‘way up high, even the stars seem to know

Why I sing as I go, watching the moon roll by.

 

Lost on the trail, I roam but he will lead me home.

 

Through the night, when all the world’s at rest,

I’ll travel along and ‘way up high, even the stars seem to know

Why I sing as I go, watching the moon roll by.

 

(Demo performed by Dave Bourne.)
