Blue Moon

Once in a blue moon The stars align my way It always starts out looking Like it’s going to be my day I thought I’d take a picture And then decided no That would just be foolish How would anybody know And so I took a hike instead Out where the buffalo roam A lovely maiden called for me But of course I wasn’t home I went out to a prairie dance Got drunk on railroad gin As I snored a brakeman’s dream They say my ship came in I wasn’t there so that’s all fair They say you snooze you loose The next blue moon will be here soon And I’ll lay off the booze Copyright © Mike Martin 2015
