Cherokee Moon

This song is by Robert Hazard and appears on the album Blue Mountain (2004).

The stars are shinin' in the Carolina night
Or is it just the cabins lightin' up the mountainside
Where lovers sleep like silver spoons
Under the Cherokee moon

If I said I'm sorry it wouldn't be enough
I know you're unhappy, I know times are tough
Listen to the old coyote's croon
Under the Cherokee moon

The trailer parks on fire, the dogs out on the road
And if you don't stop drinkin' your whole world might explode
Out on the lake you're laughing like a loon
Under the Cherokee moon

The end is drawing near to your trail of tears
The chariot swings low down on your sacred road
Under the Cherokee moon

The neon lights are sizzlin', the casino's runnin' flush
The corn crop is fizzlin' but the wall to wall is plush
And I 'm stayin' in a semi-deluxe room
Under the Cherokee moon

Your buckskins tattered, ancient parchment torn
Old folks are dyin', nobody's being born
They took away a little too much too soon
Under the Cherokee moon

The end is drawing near to your trail of tears
The chariot swings low down on your sacred road
Under the Cherokee moon

Once I had a pony, I rode him 'til he dropped
Once I had a vision and then the music stopped
And little sparrow flew away last June
Under the Cherokee moon
