Can anyone tell me the name of the song and the artist who wrote (I think ) Mr. Moon? Some of the lyrics were "Mr. Moon shining bright is watching my baby tonight." I think it was in the Mid to late 60s.

I can find a listing for 'Gee, the Moon is shining bright' recorded in 1965 - and 'Please Mister Moon' from 1978.

wasn't able to get lyrics for either though - but the first looks like a good bet! That was by the Dixie Cups.

I can do you the lyrics and tune to "Oh Mr. Moon, Moon, bright and silvery moon, won't you please shine down on me"
I don't know who popularized it; I learned it at camp in the 50s.
Blessings,
Barbara

"The Coachmen" is the name of the band.

In August of 1965, Mr. Moon and Nothing At All were recorded at Sears Studio in Omaha, Nebraska. This first of the Band's six records was issued as a two sided release on MMC Records, a Cameron label. Both sides were featured to local radio stations throughout Nebraska and Iowa because both songs were well known among Coachmen followers via live performances at most of 200 shows the Band had played by the time the record was released. While Nothing At All was charted at a few local stations, Mr. Moon quickly caught fire and entered several regional charts within the top ten before reaching and holding the number one position for several weeks.
