From the recording World Come Clean
Goodnight Moon – D (capo on 2 in “C” position)
Written by: Jake Speed – August, 2007
- intro of guitar
D A G
I’m leaving at midnight, I won’t be back no more
D A D
Believe me when I tell you it was just the right time to go.
The stars, the Big Dipper was leading me right back home
I didn’t mean to leave but it was just the right time to roam
Chorus: (enter bass, slide guitar)
Goodnight, Goodnight, Goodnight sweet midnight moon
Sweet Mama don’t weep, the sunshine will be back soon
- Solo Break (slide guitar)
I wish, I wish, I wish I could’ve stayed some more
But when Heaven comes calling, ya gotta walk right out the door
There’s blues in your kitchen. Blues all around your bed.
There’s blues in Heaven, they’re flying all around my head.
- Solo break (mando)
(Staccato like rain)
The tears are falling like little drops of rain
I wish I could fall back into your arms again.
I see four white horses. I see three turtle doves.
I see two fireflies and one star up above.
