Moonlight in Vermont Lyrics - Ray Charles

Review The Song (1)



Written by John Blackburn & Karl Suessdorf

Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves, a sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont

Icy finger-waves
Ski trails on a mountainside
Snowlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely...

Ev'ning summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont

<instrumental-one verse>

Telegraph cables, how they sing down the highway
And they travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely...

Ev'ning summer breeze
The warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont
You and I and Moonlight in Vermont

Moonlight in Vermont - a different ballad struture. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/2/13

This is a charming example of the American Ballad form, but its unusual chorus structure makes it slightly problematical in some ways. The first, second, and fourth bars of the chorus are all two bars short (six instead of eight). This does nothing to impair its merits as a song but makes it difficult to dance to, and impossible as a sequence dance tune. It has been well received by the jazz community (notably by Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan) and one can see why that is so. The melody is alluring and the harmony equally so
