Shine OnHarvest Moon
(Jack Norwort and Nora Bayes 1908)
[A7]The [Dm]night was mighty [A7]dark so you could [Dm]hardly see, For the moon refused to [A7]shine. [Dm]Couple sitting [A7]underneath a [Dm]willow tree, For [G7]love they [C7]pined. Little maid was afraid of the dark She [F]said, "I guess I'll go." [G7]Boy began to [C7]sigh, [G7]looked up at the [C7]sky, [D7]Told the moon his [G7]little taleof [C7]woe
[D7]Shine on, shine on, harvest [G7]moon, up in the sky; [C6]I [C7]ain't [C6]had no [C7]lovin' Since [F]January, [Bb]February, [F]June or July. [D7]Snow time ain't no time to [G7]stay, outdoors and spoon; [C6]Shine [C7]on, [C6]shine on, [C7]harvest [F]moon, For [Bb]me and my [F]gal. [Dm]I can't see [A7]why a [Dm]boy should sigh, By his side is the girl he loves so [A7]true,[Dm]All he has to [A7]say is: "Won't you [Dm]be my bride, For [G7]I love [C7]you, I can't see why I'm telling you, When [F]I know that you can guess." [G7]Harvest moon will [C7]smile, [G7]Shine on all the [C7]while, [D7]If the little [G7]girl should answer [C7]"yes."
