Come and look out through the window
The big old moon is shinin' down
Tell me now don't it remind you
Of a blanket on the ground

Remember back when love first found us
We'd go slippin' out of town
And we'd love beneath the moonlight
On a blanket on the ground

Chorus
I'll get the blanket from the bedroom
And we'll go walkin' once again
To the spot down by the river
Where our sweet love first began
Just because we are married
Don't mean we can't slip around
So let's walk out through the moonlight
And lay the blanket on the ground

Oh remember how excited
We used to get when love was young
That old moon was our best buddy
We couldn't wait for night to come

Now you know you still excite me
I know you love me like i am
Just once more i wish you love me
On the blanket on the ground

Chorus
I'll get the blanket from the bedroom
And we'll go walkin' once again
To that spot down by the river
Where our sweet love first began
Just because we our married
Don't mean we can't slip around
So let's walk out through the moonlight
And lay the blanket on the ground.

    Back in that day, I used to sing that song as part of my set on stage. Playing guitar and every time it seems I sung that I would have at least a dozen complimentary drinks at my table. I had a pact with the bar tender to make my non alcoholic because if I drank all, I would never be able to do the next set. and if I did not drink the drinks many men were very disappointed. I can still laugh at having to stop in the middle of one set to make a bath room run LOL .

    My husband is in jail and he wants me to bring a blanket when i pick him up... He misses me that much... No fancy motels, or even the 15 minute ride home, just us and nothing else

    The couple are married and she has happy memories of when their love was young and she wants to revisit that lovely memory by them going under the moonlight and making love on their blanket on the ground. She is saying that he still excites her and he loves her as she is, so i see the meaning as very positive.

    My thoughts are with you (posted on mar 16th) as it was my mother's favorite song as well. She's been gone for nearly two years now and it makes me smile and think of her every time i hear it.

    This song reminds me of my mam... Who sadly died recently. And we are going to play it at her funeral...
