I saw a blue moon tonight

It watched over us on all the back roads

Of Hermon & Dekalb

Shining, shining from over the hills, surrounded

By glittering stars.

In East Dekalb we saw a wide field of snow

A black jagged creek running through

And a dozen deer spread out in the dark

Digging down through the snow under the gaze

Of the blue moon.

The blue moon shined down on the car

Stalled at the intersection; I got out to help

But the kid said it was a standard with a loose cable

And sure enough he got it going & drove down into Hermon

Bringing his girlfriend home while we continued on

Heading west, the rising blue moon sending long

Black shadows way ahead of us.
