Nitty Gritty Dirt Band — Jealous Moon lyrics

Saw her there in the fading light
In full bloom on a summer night
Nothing but the man in the moon
Was standing in my way

I was drunk on the warm sweet air
Tangled up in her raven hair
I should've known but I didn't care
She'd be gone by the light of day

Cause her eyes were shining brighter
Than the light of the jealous moon
And the stars fell all around her
Well did I see you smilin'
When the morning came too soon
Did I see you smilin'
Jealous moon, jealous moon

Now the sun dances across my room
I can smell the wine and her soft perfume
The only thing that lets me know
That an angel wasn't here

You know I had this crazy dream
She flew away on stolen wings
But all she took was a pair of jeans
When see saw that the coast was clear

And her eyes were shining brighter
Than the light of the jealous moon
And the stars fell all around her
Well did I see you smilin'
When the morning came too soon
Did I see you smilin'
Jealous moon, jealous moon

And her eyes were shining brighter
Than the light of the jealous moon
And the stars they fell all around her
Well I thought I saw you smilin'
When the morning came too soon
Did I see you smilin'
Jealous moon, jealous moon
Jealous moon, jealous moon
