Willy Porter Lyrics

Hello little moonbeam
Such a welcome sight
I've got nothing in my pockets
Walk with me tonight

Old cars in the tall grass
Broken glass and chrome
Down along the railway
Behind my parent's home
Hiding in the sumac
Waiting for a train
Got a penny on the railway

Hello little moonbeam
I forgot your song
Every cross tie tells me
I've been gone too long

Seems to me
That you give your light so freely
Won't you shed your beams on me
I need you, little moonbeam

When I was a young boy
Balanced on this rails
I'd hold my jacket high, lord
Wind would fill my sail

Hello little moonbeam
Balanced on this rail
I'll hold my jacket high, lord
Wind come fill my sail

Hiding in the sumac
Waiting for a train
Got a penny on the railway

That's a beautiful sounding instrument--Playing is miraculous!


9 string guitar? I've never seen that before. Awesome!


Me neither. Blew me away. Only other guitarist I've ever seen that could give Leo Kottke a decent run for his money.

Ah man, Willy. When we met back in the NACA days, I knew you had it in the first few bars. How sweet to run across this (LJ"s tune?). Just blew my mind my friend. Have to check your tour schedule and catch it live.


WGN and the Cubs brought me here.... Willie Porter was just now sampled during the Cubs game when they were showing all the Cubs fans in the stands in Milwaukee during the broadcast. this is amazing! Thank you for posting and thanks to Willie for being awesome!
