Shy Of The Moon Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Pretty little girl on the side of the road
Yellow hair in a yellow bow, little thumb sticking in the exit lane
Two packs of smokes and a candy cane
Women hips, baby lips, a Hallelujah book in the back of a pillow-slip

If she gets out of here too soon
She'll run fast by the shy of the moon

She's been havin' the same old dreams
Lullabies and pale blue skies, fallen asleep beneath the stars
Orion aims and shoots his arrows, oh, so far, aims 'em hard
He shoots the moon and takes her as his own reward

If she's gonna see those stars too soon
She'll run fast by the shy of the moon

If she found out so long ago, she wants more than all she knows
River ends right as she goes
Water breaks and she's gone down in the undertow
She's below, I'll stand tall and hold up high my mistletoe

She's gonna shine just like brand new
She'll take my hand and we'll run by the shy of the moon

Songwriters
DYLAN, JAKOB
