Vaughn Monroe – Racing With The Moon lyrics

Once we were all together
You and the moon and I
But on the night you left me
The moon raced back to the sky

Racing with the moon
Sailing through the midnight blue
(High up in the midnight blue)
And then all too soon
It's lost from view

Gazing at the stars
Shining in the summer night
(Dreaming of the love we knew)
But just like the moon
They fade from sight
(They fade from view)

In the blue heavens I see
Your face smiling at me
My heart will never be free
Until we're back together

Racing with the moon
That is what I'll always do
Till I overtake the moon and you

    One night I was driving with my dad, when was about 5 years old, in about 1970, and I noticed the moon was racing along with our car, like it was racing only our car. I said that to my dad, and he told me of this song and it's meaning. He told me that Vaughn Monroe based the song on a couple who was driving, and the passenger was the woman who said the same thing, and her boyfriend bent down to kiss her and when he did so, he crashed into a tree and she died. So Vaughn Monroe wrote this song about that.
