Charlie Musselwhite – Shootin' For The Moon lyrics

Waitin' there by the side of the River
Waitin' there but she did not show
Wringin' his hands & shakin' his head
Checkin' his watch, it's time to go

They say the sky is the limit
Perfected in the mirror of the mightly Mississippi
Shootin' for the moon
Crash landed in the crescent city

I hear the truth, it's all you can see
There is a trick in the thick of it all
The ghost in the fog is a thin line
Between first light & last call


Waitin' there by the side of the River
Ready to cross to the other shore
Waitin' there by the side of the River
It never looked so wide before

(Chorus 2x)
