The Band The Moon Struck One Lyrics

Last updated:

(The | means a new measure and the / means the bass note on the current chord.)

intro: |Bb Eb9 |Bb Eb9 |Bb Eb9 |Bb Eb9 |
|G-7 |G-7 |D-7 |D-7 |
Julie and little John Tyler lived in the house next door
G-7 D-7 |G-7 D-7 |E-7b5 |Eb-j7 |
We would be the great triangle and to this we swore
D- |Ebj7 |Bb D-/A |G- |
Julie was my sweetheart, little John was my cohort
C /Bb |/A /G |F |F |
And all the wild horses in the world couldn't keep us apart
Gb |Gb |Bb Ebadd2 |Bb Ebadd2
Once we went for a swim in the noonday sun
|Gb |Gb |Bb Ebadd2 |Bb Ebadd2 |
And promised to return before the moon struck one
Bb Ebadd2 |Bb Ebadd2 ||Gb |Gb |Eb-7 |Eb-7 ||

Julie came running through the pasture--she was screaming at the sky
She fell down to her knees and the tears did fly
Little John was stung by a snake over by the lake
And it looked like he s really, really hurt--he was lying in the dirt
Who, we went it as fast as we could run
|Bb Ebadd2 |Bb Ebadd2 |
But we lost little John as the moon struck one
Bb Ebadd2 |Bb Ebadd2 ||Gb |Gb |Eb-7 |Eb-7

I was vacant, Julie was a bird with a broken wing
We were always afraid of what tomorrow might bring
We'll drive down to Durango--up and leave this place
And maybe forget the triangle with a change of pace
The car broke down when we had just begun
|Bb Ebadd2 |
And we walked back to the house while the moon struck one
Bb Ebadd2 |[7X] then G-7
