Does anyone have Moonlight & Skys? I heard a version done by Jimmie Rodgers about 35 years ago.

That's an easy one to get hold of nowadays. It is on Rounder CD 1059, Jimmie Rodgers, 1929-1930, Riding High, which is volume 4 in their series of the complete Jimmie Rodgers. The same material is also available from Bear Family as a boxed set.

There is also an interesting version of Answer To 'Moonlight And Skies' from 1944 on Bear Family CD 15580, Jack Guthrie, Oklahoma Hills

I had a lot of FUN transcribing this one. The sheet music is CONSIDERABLY different from the recorded version.

MOONLIGHT AND SKIES
Recorded by Jimmie Rodgers
Writer: Jimmie Rodgers

1/Oh, [D] come hear my stor-[D7]y, Of [G] heartaches and [D] sighs
I'm a pris'ner who's lonely, For my Moonlight And [A7] Skies
[D] I have a sweetheart, who's [G] waiting for me
Back in old Okla-[D]homa, Not [A7] far from Shaw-[D]nee.

2/Her lips like the [G] cherries, Her little heart [D] cries
Daddy, please come [A7] back, To your moonlight and [D] Skies
My pal's name was [G] Blackie, a lad with true [D] heart
A robb'ry we [A7] planned, so decided to [D] start.

3/I went to my [G] darling, with tears in her [D] eyes
She said, daddy don't [A7] leave me, your Moonlight And [D] Skies
I laughed at her [G] pleading, youth must have its' [D] way
And said I'll be ...[A7] back, in a couple of [D] days.

INSTRUMENTAL NOTES TO YODEL: D/A7/D

4/The [D] next scene was [D7] fatal, with a [G] shot thru his [D] heart
For Blackie died sending love to his sweet-[A7]heart
Go [D] tell her, go tell her, [G] I've sinned, my love
I'll meet her in [D] heaven, with the [A7] angels a-[D] bove.

5/That night I was [G] captured, out under the [D] stars
Now I have last('d) an' [A7] lingered behind these iron [D] bars
You'll find me at my [G] window, as the day slowly [D] dies
I am dreaming of my [A7] darling and my Moonlight And [D] Skies.

6/A pale Moon is [G] shining, is shining so [D] bright
And lovers are [A7] strolling by my window to [D] night
Their laughter so [G] merry - brings heartaches and [D] sighs
To a pris'ner who's [A7] lonely, for the Moonlight And [D] Skies.

TAG: ([D] Half a yodel instrumental) For [A7] Moonlight And [D] Skies.

Note. 1st and 4th verses have different chord structure.

You can hear the song here, sans the yodel:

Hank Snow - "Moonlight & Skies"

It's from the album "Hank Snow Sings Jimmie Rodgers Songs."
