Crescent Moon

Michael Timmins


[A] [G] [A] [G] [D] [A] [G]

[Bm] Reach a hand to the crescent moon grab [A] hold of the hollow.
[G] If she sits in the palm of the left that [Bm] moon will be fuller tomorrow.
If she sits in the palm of the right that [A] moon is on the wane
and the [G] love of the one who [F#m] shares your bed will be [Em] doing just the [Bm] same.

[Em] Won't you come with [Bm] me, she said,
there's [F#m] plenty of room in my [Bm] iron bed.
You're looking [A] cold and tired and [G] more than a little [Bm] human.
[Em] I know I'm not part of the [Bm] life you had planned,
but I [F#m] think once your body [Bm] feels my hand
your [D] mind will change and your [A] heart will lose its [G] pain. [Bm] [A]

[Bm] Out among the fields gently [A] hipped beneath the corn,
[G] Assiniboine bones beneath the highway he [Bm] stood there and he thought of home.
A finger traces the path of a satellite. You're [A] drawn to a distant copse of trees.
[G] A voice as sweet as [F#m] Mare's Tail [Em] clings to the prairie [Bm] breeze.

[Em] Won't you come with [Bm] me, she said,
there's [F#m] plenty of room in my [Bm] iron bed.
You're looking [A] cold and tired and [G] more than a little [Bm] human.
[Em] I know I'm not part of the [Bm] life you had planned,
but I [F#m] think once your body [Bm] feels my hand
your [D] mind will change and your [A] heart will lose its [G] pain. [Bm] [A] [Bm]

[A] Do I reach for you when I [G] know you're on the wane?
[A] Do I sense you when I [G] know you're not around?
[D] Do I search for you when I [A] know you can't be found?
Do I dare to speak your [G] name? [Bm] [A]

[Bm] Raise your eyes to a moonless sky and try to [A] wish upon a rising star.
[G] Search all you want for her blessing but you [Bm] won't find her sparkling there.
Now cast your eyes to a part of the sky where [A] nothing but darkness unfolds
And [G] watch as all [F#m] around you
she reveals the [Em] brilliance of secrets [Bm] untold.

[Em] Won't you come with [Bm] me, she said,
there's [F#m] plenty of room in my [Bm] iron bed.
You're looking [A] cold and tired and [G] more than a little [Bm] human.
[Em] I know I'm not part of the [Bm] life you had planned,
but I [F#m] think once your body [Bm] feels my hand
your [D] mind will change and your [A] heart will lose its [G] pain. [Bm] [A]

[A] Do I reach for you when I [G] know you're on the wane?
[A] Do I sense you when I [G] know you're not around?
[D] Do I search for you when I [A] know you can't be found?
Do I dare to speak your [G] name?
