DANCING ON THE MOON Jimmie Rodgers Early one Texas morning in Nineteen-Twenty-Two Johnny moved West to build him a nest and find things to do People who knew him didn't pursue him, they left him alone Johnny has gone away, wait for another day, he'll come home Johnny he told his lady, "Mary, I'll see you soon" I'm goin' away to find a place to stay, I'm gonna dance on the Moon One of these days when I change my ways, I'll come back here Though you are lonely, wait for me only, Mary, my dear She said, "Johnny come back, I'm a woman full grown" She said, "Johnny come back, I don't wanna be alone" Johnny went away and Mary waited as long as she could She tried to make it, but she couldn't take it anymore, it wasn't good Men in the town all waited around till Mary passed by Mary decided since her love was divided, she'd give it a try She said, "Johnny come back, I'm a woman full grown" She said, "Johnny come back, I don't wanna be alone" Ev'ry man claimed her, nobody tamed her, no man could She had the eyes of an angel and a heart that was made of wood Johnny was gone and the music played on to a different tune While it was playin' Mary danced on the Moon She said, "Johnny come back, I'm a woman full grown" She said, "Johnny come back, I don't wanna be alone" Late in October, the year was Nineteen-Twenty-Five Johnny was found on the edge of town, more dead than alive They carried him down and brought him around to Mary's room While he was dying he whispered, "Mary, I danced on the Moon" She said, "Johnny come back, I'm a woman full grown" She said, "Johnny come back, I don't wanna be alone" "Johnny come back, I'm a woman full grown" "Johnny come back, I don't wanna be alone" Early the very next day they lowered his body down Mary was dressed in black and the cool wind blew her skirts around Ev'ryone watched her, nobody touched her and nobody said a word Then like an angel dressed in white her voice was heard She said, "Johnny come back, I'm a woman full grown" "Johnny come back, I don't wanna be alone" She said, "Johnny come back and we'll play a different tune" She said, "Johnny come back and we'll dance on the Moon" Dance on the Moon We'll dance on.........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2006)
