Half Moon Rising
Yonder Mountain String Band Lyrics


There's a house somewhere I know where's the fire's burning all night long
There's a swing outside on the porch where I feel like I'll
Rock away the dusk until the dawn
And even though the wind may be howlin'
The stars are bright and they push me on and on

There's a half moon risin' in the south eastern skies
There's a cold wind blowing across the great divide
And the stars they guide my way across the night
There's a half moon rising
It's pushin' me on to another mountain top
Push me on, no no I'll never stop, push me on home
There's a half moon rising in the south eastern skies tonight

Now the shoes on my feet, those soles broken down
And my coat is tattered and worn
And the hunger in my belly, and the fever in my head
Will vanish 'ere my first glimpse of home
And even though the rain may now be fallin'
The passion is deep and pushes me on

There's a half moon risin' in the south eastern skies
There's a cold wind blowing across the great divide
And the stars they guide my way across the night
There's a half moon rising
It's pushin' me on to another mountain top
Push me on, no no I'll never stop, push me on home
There's a half moon rising in the south eastern skies tonight

There's a still at dawn like the sound of your loves breath
As she lies sleeping
Down below me now in the valley
Is the only piece on earth that I ever want to know
And her lips are as soft as I remember
She alone has brought me back on home

There's a half moon risin' in the south eastern skies
There's a cold wind blowing across the great divide
And the stars they guide my way across the night
There's a half moon rising
It's pushin' me on to another mountain top
Push me on, no no I'll never stop, push me on home
There's a half moon rising in the south eastern skies tonight

First song I came to this morning when I heard the news. Hopefully him and John Hartford are somewhere making music we'll all get to hear one day.
