Got Those Lazy Moon Blues

Updated on August 9, 2016
Old silver moon...
Old silver moon...


Old silvery moon hanging up in the sky,

It will tell us its Blues story, by and by,

Reflecting off the water in the Bayou there,

Has surely seen it all, got a lot to share.


Refrain: I got those lazy moon blues, those dog-tired and weary, lazy moon blues.

Done been up to Memphis, caught the dog back home, nothing new kinda blues.


Dog tired and weary Lazy
Dog tired and weary Lazy


Missed my home, home down in the swamplands,

Playing a mean guitar, got music in my hands.

Just tell it like it is, cause I ain't got no need to lie,

My song's full of truth, wouldn't change it, or try.


Refrain: I got those lazy moon blues, those dog-tired and weary lazy moon blues,

Done been up to Memphis, caught the Dog back home, nothing new, kinda blues.

down on the bayou...
down on the bayou...


I got me a good old job, just a playing the blues,

They made me an offer there, I could not refuse.

i played my flat top guitar, and a piano roll or two,

Told about my home I left, was feeling kinda blue.


Refrain: I got those lazy moon blues, those dog tired and weary, lazy moon blues,

Done been up to Memphis, caught the Dog back home, nothing new, kinda blues.



Caught the dog back home, nothing new....
Caught the dog back home, nothing new....


Just sittin on my porch, fingering favorite guitar strings,

Singing in the lazy moonlight, what a high, it brings.

Ain't gone leave this place no more, no one to please,

Just not enough money, to replace the times like these.


Refrain: I got those lazy moon blues, those dog tired and weary, lazy moon blues,

Done been up to Memphis, caught the Dog back home, nothing new, kinda blues.

Can't replace those down home, no more to roam, keeping a beat, Lazy moon blues.

      I like it. For some reason it made me think of not just the moon but fireflies.

      Oh I have this feeling often just about when the moon rises over the rooftops. Lovely poem.

      Sounds like the perfect open porch kind of song.
