Peggy Watson: Music

The Moon is Full Tonight

(Peggy Watson)
words/music by P. Watson
Jasmine flowers scattered round the sidewalk and the street
Smelled like springtime yesterday
Broken up, I'm all broke down
Lately I've just felt that way

The moon is full tonight
Looking down on this sorry old town
Shining with a heavenly light
A heavenly light

My neighbor's house is all lit up, might as well be Christmas Day
He's got Jesus in the garden and a preacher on TV
I can see him in there washing dishes and he looks so far away
Just like me

The moon is full tonight
Looking down on this sorry old town
Shining with a heavenly light
A heavenly light

Oh Love, promises to light your way
How I've stumbled down that street
It doesn't matter how many times that song's been played
For that pretty girl crying on the front porch
Cause he was nothing but a liar and a cheat

Wish I was young again, a slender blade of grass
Use your imagination like I do
I could take you so far downstream
You'd think it was just a dream, and it's true

The moon is full tonight
Looking down on this sorry old town
Shining with a heavenly light
A heavenly light
