Racing with the Moon
Vaughn Monroe Lyrics


Racing with the moon
I have been the midnight blue
And then, all too soon
It's lost from view

Racing with the moon
I have been the midnight blue
And then, all too soon
It's lost from view
Gazing at the stars
I have been the clouds of gray
But just like the moon
They fade away

In the blue heavens, I see
Your face smiling at me
My heart will never be free
Until we're back together

Racing with the moon
That is what I'll always do
'Til I overtake the moon and you

Racing with the moon,
High up in the midnight thru,
And then all too soon,
It's lost from view,

Racing with the moon,
High up in the midnight blue,
And then all too soon,
It's lost from view,

Gazing at the stars,
High up in the clouds of grey,
But just like the moon,
They fade away,

In the blue heavens, i see, your face smiling at me,
my heart will never be free,
until we're back together,

Racing with the moon, that's what I'll always do,
Till i overtake, the moon and you.

First heard this in 1948 at 4 years old, when I was in bed dozing and my uncle was in bathroom shaving, with door ajar, and the radio on. This was playing. Have loved it all my life...

This is a wonderful thing you've shared.

I was 4 when I heard him sing Ghost Riders in the Sky. Still one of my favorite songs.

I was with my parents on vacation in the late 50’s. We were staying at a motel in Lake Tahoe. I believe it was called the Ravenswood. Vaughn Monroe was staying there and was at the pool and I remember my mother and father met him and had a conversation with him. My mother sang with a few bands on radio during the 40’s in New York City. At 12 years old, I hadn’t a clue who he was, but I sure enjoy his music now.

A very distinct voice that one could tell apart immediately in a group of singers 🙂
