Shoot the Moonlight Out

Music & Lyrics by Garland Jeffreys

From the album American Boy & Girl (1979)

 

Lovers they will take a walk

Rumors fly and people will talk

Guess that’s just the way the story goes

Baby let’s take a chance

Tonight we’re gonna’ make romance

Shoot the moonlight out

Only heaven knows

 

Walkin’ down lovers lane

Tenderness and I feel no pain

You and me and the full moon up above

Baby please hold me tight

The stars are on our side tonight

Shoot the moonlight out

Gonna’ make sweet love

 

Shoot the moonlight out

Gonna’ make you mine

Shoot the moonlight out

Gonna’ feel alright

Shoot the moonlight out

Baby there ain’t no doubt

‘Cause tonight we’re gonna’

Shoot the moonlight

 

Shoot the moonlight, shoot the moonlight

Shoot the moonlight, shoot the moonlight out

 

Shoot the moonlight out

I’m gonna’ make you mine

Shoot the moonlight out

I’m gonna feel alright

Shoot the moonlight out

Gonna’ make romance

Shoot the moonlight out

Give me one more chance

Shoot the moonlight out

I’m gonna’ feel my soul

Shoot the moonlight out

I wanna’ lose control

Shoot the moonlight out

I’m gonna’ make sweet love

Shoot the moonlight out

Under the stars above

Shoot the moonlight out

Makin’ love tonight

Shoot the moonlight out
