Pretty little girl on the side of the roadYellow hair in a yellow bowLittle thumb sticking in the exit laneTwo packs of smokes and a candy caneWith women hips and baby lipsA hallelujah book in the back of a pillow-slipIf she gets out of here too soonShe’ll run fast by the shy of the moonIf she’s been havin’ the same old dreamsOf lullabies and pale blue skiesFallen asleep beneath the starsOrion aims and shoots his arrows oh so farAims ’em hardHe shoots the moon and takes her as his own rewardIf she’s gonna see those stars too soonShe’ll run fast by the shy of the moonIf she found out so long agoThat she wants more than all she knowsThe river ends right as she goesWater breaks and she’s gone down in the undertowShe’s below, but I’ll stand tall and hold up high my mistletoeShe’s gonna shine just like brand newShe’ll take my hand and we’ll run by the shy of the moon
