Cajun Moon    (1986)

The moon is full and my heart is high
I love to dance, oh me oh my
Gonna have more fun than a tree and a coon
Tonight's the dance of the Cajun moon

Pickups and wagons 'round the railroad shack
Bonfires are drawin' in a crowd out back
Step through the door and I see my Cheri
That's when I feel her mama's eyes on me

Cajun moon, nugget of gold, river of light on the bayou
You're just like rain to a love in bloom, so
Shine on me, oh Cajun moon

Guitar, a squeeze box, a fiddle and bow
Little band a-playin' every song they know
Ol' woman sittin' there and yellin' for more
My heart is willin' but my feet, they're so sore!


Once more we're waltzin' to Jolie Blonde
I lean in closer and Cheri responds
Her mama's smilin' as we slip from the room
To sit and stare at the Cajun moon

(chorus x2)
