Bob Dylan's
Lyrics
Bob Dylan and Suze

Moonlight

The seasons they are turnin' and my sad heart is yearnin'

To hear again the songbird's sweet melodious tone

Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

.

The dusky light, the day is losing

Orchids, poppies, black-eyed Susan

The earth and sky that melts with flesh and bone

Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

.

The air is thick and heavy

All along the levee

Where the geese into the countryside have flown

Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

.

Well, I'm preachin' peace and harmony

The blessings of tranquility

Yet I know when the time is right to strike

I'll take you 'cross the river dear

You've no need to linger here

I know the kinds of things you like

.

The clouds are turnin' crimson

The leaves fall from the limbs an'

The branches cast their shadows over stone

Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

.

The boulevards of cypress trees

The masquerades of birds and bees

The petals, pink and white, the wind has blown

Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

.

The trailing moss and mystic glow

Purple blossoms soft as snow

My tears keep flowing to the sea

Doctor, lawyer, Indian chief

It takes a thief to catch a thief

For whom does the bell toll for, love? It tolls for you and me

.

My pulse is runnin' through my palm

The sharp hills are rising from

The yellow fields with twisted oaks that groan

Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

.
