Once in a Very Blue Moon By Patrick Alger (Recorded by Nanci Griffith and
Once by Dolly Parton)
I found your letter in my mailbox today
You were just checking if I was okay
And if I miss you, well, you know what they say
It's just Once in a Very Blue Moon
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one coming on soon
No need to tell me you'd like to be friends
And help me get back on my feet again
And if I miss you, well, it's just now and then
Just once in a very blue moon
It's just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one coming on soon
(Bridge)
There's a blue moon
Shining
When I am reminded of all we've been through
Such a blue moon
Shining
Does it ever shine down on you
You act as if it never hurt you at all
Like I'm the only one whose getting up from a fall
Don't you remember, can't you recall
Just once in a very blue moon
It's just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one coming on soon
Just Once in very Blue Moon
( Note to the readers: When you have to full moons in one month, the
Second one is called the Blue Moon
