LOOKING FOR THE MOON
Tom Paxton

My heart is in the mountains, while my body's on this train.
My head is anywhere but in today.
It's cloudy in the city and they say it looks like rain.
God, just once I'd long to hear the conductor say:
    Are you lookin' for the moon? Would you dance with her tonight?
    Would you chase across the shadows as she goes slippin' out of sight?
    Leavin' common sense behind you for a joy that ends so soon,
    Rushin' through the forest blind, never knowin' what you'll find,
    Lookin' for the moon?
The train is filled with strangers, and every stop adds more.
We're racin' toward the glass and granite walls
While I'm dreamin' of my river where the rushing rapids roar,
And from a somewhere deep inside my spirit calls.

We pull in to the station and I join the taxi line.
It's rainin' now like it means to rain all day.
This city has ten million dreams and not one of them is mine,
So I turn myself around and I walk away.
    And I'll go lookin' for the moon, and I'll dance with her tonight,
    And I'll chase across the shadows as she goes slippin' out sight,
    Leavin' common sense behind me, for a joy that ends so soon,
    Rushin' through the forest blind, never knowin' what I'll find,
    Lookin' for the moon.
    Are you lookin for the moo-o-o-o-n?

Looking for the Moon [Early Version]
(Tom Paxton)

My heart is in the mountains, while my body's on this train.
My thoughts are half a million miles away.
There's sunshine in the city but it might as well be rain
God, just once I'd love to hear the conductor say:

Are you looking for the moon?
Would you dance with her tonight?
Would you chase her 'cross the shadows
As she goes slipping out of sight?
Leaving common sense behind you
For a joy that ends too soon.
Rushing through the forest blind,
Never knowing what you'll find
When you go looking for the moon.

I don't look out the window; I just close my eyes and dream:
I wade into the river, and I'm fine.
For the mayfly hatch is rising all along my golden stream,
Till the waters part and a trout is on my line.

Are you looking for the moon?
Would you dance with her tonight?
Would you chase her 'cross the shadows
As she goes slipping out of sight?
Leaving common sense behind you
For a joy that ends too soon.
Rushing through the forest blind,
Never knowing what you'll find
When you go looking for the moon.

The young man who was fearless is hidden from my view;
I always miss him most this time of year.
For the flowers are on the mountain and all the world is new,
As memory comes and whispers in my ear.

Are you looking for the moon?
Would you dance with her tonight?
Would you chase her 'cross the shadows
As she goes slipping out of sight?
Leaving common sense behind you
For a joy that ends too soon.
Rushing through the forest blind,
Never knowing what you'll find
When you go looking for the moon.
