[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/ricky-skaggs-cajun-moon-lyrics.html ]
The moon is full and my heart is high
I love to dance oh me oh my
Gonna have more fun than treein' a coon
Tonight's the dance of the Cajun moon
Pickups and wagons round the river road shack
Bonfire's drawing a crowd out back
Step through the door and I see my Sheri
That's when I feel here mama's eyes on me
Cajun moon nugget of gold river of light on the bayou
You're just like rain to a love in bloom
So shine on me oh Cajun moon
Guitar a squeeze box a fiddle and bow
Little band a playing every song they know
Old woman sittin' there and yelling for more
My heart is willing but my feet are sore
Cajun moon nugget of gold...
Once more we're waltzing to Jolie Blon
I'm leaning closer and Sheri responds
Her mama's smiling as we slip from the room
To sit and stare at the Cajun moon
Cajun moon nugget of gold...
Cajun moon nugget of gold...
