Moon River
Jerry Butler Lyrics

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Dream-maker, you old heart-breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waiting 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

We're after the same rainbow's end, waiting 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

THE ICEMAN COMETH! This is the definitive version of the Mancini written classic. Unfortunately, Jerry Butler never got his due for this exemplary vocal performance during the 60s, when "race music" policy was still rampant throughout this country on AM radio. Inferior artists such as Andy Williams got the credit at the time. Who remembers Andy's version now? NO ONE! Jerry Butler has endured the test of time. His version is now considered the definitive one.


Oh. Now that is a classy version.
The strings are just devine.
The vocals are a league apart.
Thank you so much for the posting.

There's nothing like that static sound.  This is another song that starts the tears. Thx Mr.Banks.
