I Took the Moon For A Walk Lyrics - Mark Erelli

Mark Erelli Chords




I took the moon for a walk last night
It followed behind like a still summer kite
Though there wasn't a string or a tail in site
When I took the moon for a walk

I carried my flashlight just in case
The got scared and hid its face
But it peeked through the clouds fragile as lace
When I took the moon for a walk
I warned the moon
To rise a bit higher
So it wouldn't get hooked
On a church's tall spire
While the neighborhood dogs
Made a train whistle choir
When I took the moon for a walk

We tiptoed through grass where the nightcrawlers creep
When the rust bellied robins have fallen asleep
And the moon called the dew so the grass seemed to week
When I took the moon for a walk

We raced for the swings
Where I kicked my feet high
And imagined the moon
Had just asked me to fly
Hand holding hand
Through the starry night sky
When I took the moon for a walk

Then as we went back the moon kept me in sight
It followed me home and it stayed there all night
And it thanked me by sharing its sweet sleepy light
When I took the moon for a walk
