Cowboy song

The Desperado Housewives are doing a cowboy themed evening at the Montague Arms on 9 Sept. I've written two new songs for the event. Here's the rough lyrics of the most recently penned. In fact I've just finished it. It's very very simple and like 'The Thousand Stories' it just builds up a simple image of a meeting but this time in a more dramatic way. Now I have to walk the dog.

Under the Moon

Under the Moon
The pale of the moon
Under the stars
The evening stars
In the warm night breeze
Of the desert

There is a house
A lonely house
A single lonely house
Where a boy and a girl
Can be together

In the pale moon light
La la la la light
The palest moon light
They arrive one by one
In heaven

She holds out her hand
Her little hand
Her pale little hand
And takes his
Calloused hand
Forever

He holds her hand
Her little hand
Her pale little hand
And swears they will
Never be parted, never.

Under the moon
The palest moon
Under the stars
The evening stars
In the warm night breeze
Of the desert.

  1. Jude - I admire the ability to pen new songs AND LEARN THEM that quick!!!! I can't learn lyrics - I need to become a purely instrumental person... like Ravi Shankar or someone like that. Words - over-rated! (Not yours though, not yours, mine, mine...!!!)
