The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – Moon On The Rise lyrics

(Guitar intro)

When that moon is on the rise

And the light gets in your eyes

And stirs somethin' that used to lie

Inside you 'till you ask why

Why ain't I just passin' by

Like that moon that's on the rise

It shouldn't come as no surprise

I been back here time and time

Like that sun that brings the spring

I know I'll be back again

If you don't know what you do

When it's over and we're through

Watch what happens every spring

What was dead is live again

So why should you be odd man out

You should forget all your doubts

While some people look for purpose

Their life passes by

Right before their eyes

And if the purpose is to do good

That's an easy way to live everyday

If you would

(Guitar solo)

So when the moon is on the rise

And that light gets in your eyes

And stirs something' that used to lie

Inside you 'till you ask why

Why ain't I just passin' by

Like that moon that's on the rise

It shouldn't come as no surprise

I been back here time and time

Like that sun that brings the spring

I know that I'll be back again

Like that moon that's on the rise

I know I'll be back in time

I know I'll be back in time

I know I'll be back in time

I know I'll be back in time
