Summer Moon

Album: This Ole Boy (2012)

  • I remember like it was yesterday those hot nights
    Fireflies, candy apple kiss at the county fair
    A little backwoods detour on the long way home
    To be alone, honeysuckle sweetened up the midnight air

    And that summer moon
    Shinin’ like sunlight
    Bouncin’ off your eyes
    And lightin’ up mine
    Just me and you
    Pullin’ off on a back road
    Blanket and a radio and that summer moon

    Two young lovers cuddled up on a dropped tailgate
    Half past late, couple Dixie cups, filled up to the brim
    Footpath through the tall, white pines down to yellow creek
    Neck deep, and wet clothes drip-drying on a willow limb

    And that summer moon
    Shinin’ like sunlight
    Bouncin’ off your eyes
    And lightin’ up mine
    Just me and you
    Pullin’ off on a back road
    Blanket and a radio and that summer moon

    I told your daddy we ran outta gas
    He winked at me and kinda laughed
    And said don’t you know that I tried that
    On her mama’s dad way back when

    That summer moon
    Was shinin’ like sunlight
    Bouncin’ off your eyes
    And lightin’ up mine
    Just like you
    We pulled off on a back road
    Blanket and a radio

    And that summer moon
    Shinin’ like sunlight
    Bouncin’ off your eyes
    And lightin’ up mine
    Just me and you
    Pullin’ off on a back road
    Blanket and a radio and that summer moon

    Ooh, I love that summer moon Writer/s: CHRIS ALLEN WALLIN, CRAIG MORGAN, PHILLIP O'DONNEL
