Half Moon Rising  Yonder Mountain String Band

There's a [G]house somewhere I [C]know where the [D]fires burn[Em] all [C]night [G]long
There's a [G]swing outside on the [C]porch where I [D]feel I could[Em]
Rock [D]away the [C]dusk til the dawn
And[Am] even though the wind may be [G]howlin'
[Am]Stars are bright and they [C]push me on and [D]on

There's a [C]half moon [G]rising in [D]southeastern [Em]skies
There's a [C]cold wind [G]blowin' [D]across the great [G]divide
And the [C]stars they [G]guide my [D]way across the [Em]night
There's a [C]half moon [G]rising, [D]pushin me on to [G]another mountain [D]top
[D]Push me on, [G]no I'll never stop[D], push me on home
There's a [C]half moon [G]rising in [D]southeastern skies to[G]ni[C]gh[D]t [Em]

Verse 2 (same chords as Verse 1):

Now the shoes on my feet, those soles broken down
And my coat is tattered and worn
And the hunger in my belly, and the fever in my head
Will vanish 'ere my first glimpse of home
And even though the rain may now be fallin'
The passion is deep and pushes me on


there's a still at dawn like the sound of your love's breath
As she lies sleeping
Down below me now in the valley
Is the only piece on earth that I ever want to know
And her lips are as soft as I remember
She alone has brought me back on home
