SHINE ON HARVEST MOON
 
div
 
Night was mighty dark so you could hardly see
For the moon refused to shine
Couple sitting underneath a willow tree
For love they pine
Little maid was most afraid of darkness
So she said, 'I guess I'll go.' Boy began to sigh
Looked up at the sky, told the moon his little tale of woe

Chorus: 'Oh shine on, harvest moon, up in the sky
I ain't had no lovin' since April, January, June or July
Snow time ain't no time to stay - out doors and spoon
So shine on, harvest moon, for me and my gal.'


I can't see why the boy should sigh, when by his side
Is the girl he loves so true
All he has to say is, 'Won't you be my bride?
For I love you.'
Why should I be telling you this secret
When I know that you can guess?'
Harvest moon will smile, shine on all the while
If the little girl should answer, 'Yes.'

Chorus: 'Oh shine on, harvest moon, up in the sky
I ain't had no lovin' since April, January, June or July
Snow time ain't no time to stay - out doors and spoon
So shine on, harvest moon, for me and my gal.'
