The Night The Moon Fell Down

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

A new Hunter/Lauderdale song in 2012.

Walking with my lady, Mandy
Across the midnight fields beneath the stars
Sipping cherry brandy
Sweet as candy
Sipping cherry brandy from a jar

Chewing plug tobacco Bull's Eye
Staring up at Jupiter and Mars
Looking down on high
From our own sky
Up among them old Kentucky stars

The night the moon fell down
Tumbled to the ground
Left a hole up in the sky about ten feet around
There's nothing you can say
But shrug and walk away
As long as we got love it doesn't matter anyway

Talking with my lady, Mandy
Her big brown eyes tell more than words can say
Poker, penny ante
Guitar handy
There'll be time to sleep come break of day

The night the moon fell down
Tumbled to the ground
Left a hole up in the sky about ten feet around
There's nothing you can say
But shrug and walk away
As long as we got love it doesn't matter anyway

Mandy had a bar and grill in Jackson
Married her in nineteen ninety three
Only thing I regret
We didn't meet sooner
But you can't have it all, just what you get

You can't have it all
So I found out the night the moon fell down
