Moon Country

Wherein Hoady Carmichael/Johnny Mercer

I long for that moon country
That possum and coon country
That sycamore heaven back south
I’ll lose my mind till I get there
I long for that old country
That good for the soul country
With folk cooking things that melt in your mouth
Mm-mm when my cousin Cindy Lou
Plays a twilight hymn to you
She makes that old piano
Sound exactly like brand new
I long for that moon country
That’s where I should be
‘cause that old moon country is home to me
