Standing on the moon - I got no cobweb on my shoe

Standing on the moon - I'm feeling so alone and blue

I see the Gulf of Mexico - As tiny as a tear

Standing on the moon - I see the soldiers come and go
          D             G                C              G
There's a metal flag beside me - Someone planted long ago

Old Glory standing stiffly - Crimson, white and indigo

I see all of Southeast Asia - I can see El Salvador

I hear the cries of children - And the other songs of war

It's like a mighty melody - That rings down from the sky

Standing on the moon - I see a shadow on the sun
 D                G                  C
Standing on the moon - The stars go fading one by one
  D              G          C           G
I hear a cry of victory - Another of defeat
C G                D    (G)       C
A scr*p of age-old lullaby - Down some forgotten street

G  G  G  C

Standing on the moon - But I would rather be with you
D                    G            C               G
Somewhere in San Francisco - On a back porch in July
C    G             D       (G)      C
Just looking up at heaven - At this crescent in the sky
         G  C
In the sky


[Outro]
 D                G         C                G  C

A lovely view of heaven - But I'd rather be with you
