The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Meet Me by the Moonlight [core]

Meet me by the 4 moonlight, oh 1 meet me
Meet 5 me by the moonlight a 1 lone, Lord, Lord
I have a sad 4 story to 1 tell you
All 5 down by the moonlight a 1 lone

If I had the wings of an angel
Over these prison walls I would fly
And I'd fly to the arms of my darlin'
And there I'd be willing to die

If I had a ship on the ocean
All mounted with silver and gold
Before my little darlin' would suffer
I'd have that ship anchored and sold

I've always loved you my darling
You said I could never be true
But I'd do anything just to please you
I'd die any day just for you
