​Moon Child

This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker and appears on the album Jerry Jeff Walker (1972).

I'm a moon child
Have you understand
I'm not Mr. sunshine
I'm the moonlight man

I'm just like the moon yeah
Hanging out now
High in the sky
I come with the night
And I'm gone in the morning light

The days are uptight
Controlled by the law
Everybody's working
Tryin' to get off

And a moon child's job
Is to set day people free
Unlock inhibitions
And his music is the key

When the moon goes down
He hides somewhere
Probably got all of his goodies stashed there
He's takin' his rest and gatherin up strength
'Cause he never knows
What tomorrow night might bring
