Randy Travis is one of my all-time favourite singers. When it comes to great singers, I am a tone- junkie. Randy has such an exquisite voice and to record this one was a joy. This is a song close to my heart and paints a picture of where I am in my life, blessed with contentment, a beautiful big Italian family, the dearest of friends of many years standing, and to still sing …it doesn’t get any better than that. Amen

Lyrics

Honky Tonk Moon – Dennis O’Rourke
Copyright 1988 Warner Bros. Records Inc.

dirt road in the twilight, woods so cool & dark
up ahead pale neon, somewhere a dog barks
honky tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby & me

breaking up the pool balls, chalking up the cues
juke box pumping softly, lazy summer blues
honky tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby & me

through the blue smoky haze, all through the days
trouble seemed to melt away
my hearts on a roll, I’m easy in my soul
there’s no hurry, no worry, things are going my way

my arms around my baby, shufflin’ on the floor
cigarettes and sawdust, squeaky old screen door
honky tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby and me

outside the dark is falling, stars are winking bright
that old hoot owl is calling, everything’s alright
honky tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby and me
honky tonk moon, keep shining on my baby and me
