The Way Out West The Way Out West

Big Moon ©Michael Tomlinson


Listen

Big moon above me, copper and gold
Apricot pie up in the sky
I can't get no sleep long as you roam
I guess I'll just follow you home

I saw the moon roll into the sky, low above the ground
Big, full and mighty bright, making happy fools all around
It seemed a sign of good things coming, every one agreed
We left the house, screen door running
Fell out right there into the street

She seemed to hang there against the law, bigger than allowed
Every kid had brought a dog and then they all began to howl
You should've seen us all there spinning, silly as loons
Pretty soon the whole wild neighborhood, grinning
Out there under the moon

Big moon above me, copper and gold
Apricot pie up in the sky
I can't get no sleep long as you roam
I guess I'll just follow you home

Even jaded people stopped, staring up in the sky
I saw a spell-bound traffic cop looking up and letting all lanes fly
Every where was indecision, no where left to drive
Quit the car and cut that engine
People, we must get out alive!

Tomorrow I know are going to remember
We felt so alive and we really surrendered to
Ah, the warm spring night and the full moon light
And the smell of life when you breathe it in again

Everybody's cell phone died, too much mighty moon
All the TV screens went white, it was turning into one great night!
And every one met their neighbors, some they never knew
I know it probably sounds like a fable
But honey, you've never seen such a moon

Big moon above me, copper and gold
Apricot pie up in the sky
I can't get no sleep long as you roam
I guess I'll just follow you home
Big moon we're going to follow you home
