Lyrics
Blue moon
Blue moon
Blue moon, keep a-shinin' bright
Blue moon, keep on a-shinin' bright
You're gonna bring-a me back-a my baby tonight
Blue moon, keep a-shinin' bright

I said blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shinin'
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue
I said, blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shinin'
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue
A-well-a, it was on one moonlight night
Stars shinin' bright
Whispered on high
Love's said goodbye
Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shinin'
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue

Well I said, blue moon of Kentucky, just keep on shinin'
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue
I said, blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shinin'
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue

A-well-a, it was on one moonlight night
Stars shinin' bright
Whispered on high
Love's said goodbye
Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shinin'
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue
