Under The Summer Moonlight

This song is by Garnet Rogers and appears on the album Sparrow's Wing (1999).

Well Dougie was a soldier
He brought home a bride.
Cicely crossed the ocean wide.
All these years now at his side
Through the good and the bad times together.

And they had a little house,
Made it a home.
Both worked hard till the kids were grown.
And finally now they're on their own
Though it seemed like it took forever.

'Cause when the sun beats low and the day is through
They hurry through dinner no time to lose.
Time to polish up their dancing shoes
And head to the hall together.

So start up the fiddle and watch them go
High stepping on the dance floor;
Heel and toe.
Their eyes so bright, their faces aglow,
Oh, Under the Summer moonlight.

Well some days are good, some days are fair,
And some days make you want to tear your hair
But tonight she's Ginger and he's Fred Astaire.
Cheek to cheek on the floor so lightly.

And some dance two-steps kicking up their heels.
Some folks live for the eights and reels.
Dougie loves the way that Cecily feels
In his arms as he hold her tightly.

So start up the fiddle and watch them go
High stepping on the dance floor;
Heel and toe.
Their eyes so bright, their faces aglow,
Oh, Under the Summer moonlight.

So here's to the moonlight,
Here's to the band.
Here's to the fiddler who plays so grand.
Here's to the couple dancing hand and hand
Under the summer moonlight.

So start up the fiddle and watch them go
High stepping on the dance floor;
Heel and toe.
Their eyes so bright, their faces aglow,
Oh, Under the Summer moonlight.

So start up the fiddle and watch them go
High stepping on the dance floor;
Heel and toe
Their eyes so bright, their faces aglow,
Oh, Under the Summer moonlight.
Under the Summer moonlight.
Oh, Under the Summer moonlight.
