  • And the fields are turning
    And the temperature is rising
    See the factories burning
    (when?) the wheels keep turning

    Well, I've seen that you've grown now
    With the horses you ride
    Gonna have your say now
    I see the new moon rising

    Oh, she don't mind
    She got the time
    I see the new moon rising

    Oh, she don't mind
    She got the time
    I see the new moon rising

    I see this small town boy now
    From a small town family
    He's got to find his way now
    Gotta find himself a woman
    With the skill of the people
    He don't wanna be no whipping boy
    Well, the time has come now
    Gotta hit the highway

    Oh, she don't mind
    She got the time
    I see the new moon rising

    Oh, she don't mind
    She got the time
    I see the new moon rising

    I see the new moon rising

    I see the new moon rising

    See the new moon rising
    When the (tides are turning)
    She got the (luck of knowing)
    She got the (? showing)
    Well, they're all in-love now
    And, see the (fields are turning)
    I see the new moon rising

    I see the new moon rising

    Oh, she don't mind
    She got the time
    I see the new moon rising

    Oh, she don't mind
    She got the time
    I see the new moon rising Writer/s: ANDREW JAMES STOCKDALE
