                C
Above the dark highways 
                F
on a black tar roof 
               G
stood the sad milkman 
                  C
in love with the moon 

                   C
She filled up his window 
                 F
with soft milky light 
                       G
so he climbed up the chimney 
              C
and into the night 

                  F
But the moon she rises 
                  C
and the moon she falls 
                    G
and her slow white eye 
                C
sees nothing at all 

             C
Down on the sidewalk 
                  F
a crowd gathered round 
                        G
throwing up bricks and bottles 
                  C
to knock the boy down 

              C
He stood up above them 
                       F
with his hands in the air 
                   G
crying up to the moonbeams, 
                     C
"Come let down your hair." 

                  F
But the moon she rises 
                  C
and the moon she falls 
                    G
and her slow white eye 
                C
sees nothing at all 

              C
He wanted to feel like 
             F
a bucket of milk 
                 G
or sweet summer wind 
                   C
on rolling, green hills 

              C
He wanted to fly 
              F
up from the roof 
                      G
up through the night wind 
                    C
to the arms of the moon

                  F
But the moon she rises 
                  C
and the moon she falls 
                    G
and her slow white eye 
                C
sees nothing at all 

                  F
But the moon she rises 
                  C
and the moon she falls 
                    G
and her slow white eye 
                C
sees nothing at all
