John Lee Hooker – Moon Is Rising lyrics

Yes, the moon a-risin'
And the sun is sinkin' low
I can't find my baby
Wonder why did the woman go?

You can talk about my baby
Say a-just what you please
She's my baby
Lord and I don't care what she do
She will be my baby until her dyin' day

Yes, I love that woman
And I just can't help myself
She the only woman, people
Yes, I ever loved
Yes, Lord have mercy

Yes, she know I love her
The way she treat me
Lord have mercy, way she do
Yes, I love you, baby
Don't care what you do
