(Dennis O'Rourke)

Dirt road in the twilght, woods so cool and dark.
Up ahead pale neon, somewhere a dog barks,
Honky tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby and me

Breaking up the pool balls, chalking up the cues
Juke box pumping softly, lazy summer blues
Honky tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby and me

Through the blue smoky haze, all through the haze
All the day's trouble seem to melt away
My heart's on a roll, I'm easy in my soul
There's no hurry, no worry, things are goin' my way

My arms around my baby, shufflin' on the floor
Cigarettes and sawdust, squeaky old screen door.
Honk Tonk Moon, keeps shinin on my baby and me.

Outside the dark is falling, stars are twinkling bright
An old hoot owl is calling, everything's all right

Honky Tonk Moon, keeps shinin on my baby and me.
Honky Tonk Moon, keeps shinin on my baby and me.
