Big Ol’ Prairie Moon Jacquie Manning, ©1995 Tatertunes Music, BMI

 

Big ol’ prairie moon hanging high up in the sky
Make the the dogies moo and it makes the coyotes cry
A-oo, I love that prairie moon
A-oo, I love that prairie moon
 
In the bright neon lights of New York City
Pale little moon don’t hardy show
So it starts to rolling it’s way westward
Herding up the stars as it goes
Herding up the stars as it goes
 
By the time it gets to the western prairie
It’s gathered up more stars than you can count
And it’s shining light fills up the whole durn sky
It’s big and bright and bold and white and Oh so round
I love that prairie moon
 
Poor little dogie crying moo, moo, moo
I’m so far away from home
But he’s got himself a partner in that big ol’ prairie moon
Hold him in it’s loving arm beams till the morning comes that
 
Big ol’ prairie moon hanging high up in the sky
Make the the dogies moo and it makes the coyotes cry
A-oo, I love that prairie moon
A-oo, I love that prairie moon
