Trying to find the name and/or artist of the song inluding the lyrics:
"even though we ain't got money, I'm so in love with you honey." and
"In the morning when I rise, it brings a tear of joy to my eyes... tell me everything is going to be all right."

Help! Thanks.

It's called "Danny's Song" and was written and recorded by Kenny Loggins. The hit recording in the USA, though, was by Anne Murray, who skipped a verse.

When in doubt, ask Google.

You are treading on thin ice by even mentioning this song around here, Jen, and I am risking my reputation by posting it. It is the infamous "Danny's Song":

DANNY'S SONG

Kenny Loggins

People smile and tell me I'm the lucky one
And we've just begun, think I'm gonna have a son
He will be like she and me, as free as a dove
Conceived in love, sun is gonna shine above

And even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with ya, honey
And everything will bring a chain of love
And in the mornin' when I rise
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me, everything is gonna be alright

Pisces, Virgo rising is a very good sign
Strong and kind, and the little boy is mine
Now I see a family where the once was none
Now we've just begun, yeah we're gonna fly to the sun

Love the girl who holds the world in a paper cup
Drink it up, love her and she'll bring you luck
And if you find she helps your mind, buddy, take her home
Don't leave her alone, try to earn what lover's own.

Missed your post Tinker, here's that missing verse, going out to all the folks in Chicagoland--

Seems as though a month ago I was down and tied,
Never got high,
Oh I was a sorry guy.
Now a smile, a face, a girl that shares my name,
Now I'm through with the game,
This boy will never be the same.

Looking for a song that was released in the 60s (I think).
Lyrics were partially "Mr. Moon Shining bright is watching my baby tonight"

Actually, Anne Murray just sings the first and last verse (which have more widespread relevance than the middle two verses, which pertain to Kenny Loggins's brother Danny, for whom the song written).

But I'm confused about the "down and tied" lyric in the second verse. I know it makes more sense than what the lyrics sound like to me -- and, apparently, a lot of other people -- which is:
"Seems as though a month ago I was beta chi ..."

I've always wondered what the term "beta chi" refers to in that lyric, but I swear that's what Kenny Loggins sings.    I can't think of what it could be a mondegreen of. "Tied" could sound like "chi," but "down and" would not sound like "beta."

Anyway, I think I'll sing it "down and tied" from now on, because that makes more sense to me.

I always thought the line was -

"Seems as though a month ago I was a bitter guy"

- it did always sound like Beta Chi, but I never figured Kenny for a frat guy

There is a fine live version on Loggins & Messina: Live Bustin Out. First few songs are Loggins singing solo then he brings out Jim Messina. Now I admit it has alot of "easy listening" kind of tunes on it but for some reason it penetrated my "Too Cool For School" persona and I really liked it, in college it was the go to album whenever I could get a girl alone in my dorm room!

Well, "a bitter guy" would make sense and it does sort of sound like that's what Kenny L sings.
But the 3rd rhyming line in that verse ends with "I was a sorry guy." Usually songwriters don't use the same word twice in the same verse in that manner (using the same word instead of a rhyming word), so I doubt that "bitter guy" is the real lyric.

As to "beta chi" being a fraternity, that still is indecipherable to me.
