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
1. Oh, [D] come hear my stor-[D7]y of [G] heartaches and [D] sighs.
2. Her lips like the [G] cherries; her little heart [D] cries:
3. I went to my [G] darling with tears in her [D] eyes.
INSTRUMENTAL NOTES TO YODEL: D/A7/D
4. The [D] next scene was [D7] fatal, with a [G] shot through his [D] heart,
5. That night I was [G] captured out under the [D] stars.
6. A pale moon is [G] shining, is shining so [D] bright
TAG: ([D] Half a yodel instrumental) For [A7] moonlight and [D] skies.
Note. 1st and 4th verses have different chord structures.

You can hear the song here, sans the yodel:
Hank Snow - "Moonlight & Skies"
It's from the album "Hank Snow Sings Jimmie Rodgers Songs."
