In the evenin' by the moonlight when my mother had finished working
We used to sit around the fire place, till the cornbread, it was done
And then, we all would eat our supper, after that, we'd clean the kitchen
It's the only time they ever gave us to spare to have a little fun

Then, my daddy used to take his fiddle down that hung upon the wall
While the silvery moon was shining clear and bright
How the old folks would enjoy it, they would sit all night and listen
As we used to sing in the evenin' by the moonlight

In the evenin' by the moonlight, you could hear banjos ringin'
You could hear them by the moonlight, you could hear my folks all singing
How my mother she would enjoy it, she would sit all night and listen
As we sang in the evenin' by the moonlight, oh, yeah

In the evenin' by the moonlight, you could hear folks all singin'
In the evenin' by the moonlight, you could hear my folks all singin'
How my mother she would enjoy it, she would sit all night and listen
As we sang in the evenin' by the moonlight, oh, yeah

In the evenin' by the moonlight, you could hear banjos ringin'
In the evenin' by the moonlight, you could hear my folks all singin'
How my mother she would enjoy it, she would sit all night and listen
As we sang in the evenin' by the moonlight, oh, yeah
