    Em (4)                                                             D (4 w/low riff)
        Come a little bit closer, hear what I have to say
    Em (4)                                                                           D (4 w/low riff)
        Just like children sleepin' we could dream this night away.
    G (4)                                                                           D (4 w/main riff)
         But there's a full moon rising,  let's go dancing in the light.
    G (4)                                                                                       D (4 w/main riff)
         We know where the music's playing, let's go out and feel the night.

    A7sus4 (2)                                            A7 (2)
                    Because I'm still in love with you, I wanna see you dance

         A7sus4 (2)                                 A7 (2)

    again, because I'm still in love with you, on this harvest moon.

        When we were strangers, I watched you from afar

    Em (4)                                                                D (4 w/low riff)
        When we were lovers, I loved you with all my heart
    G (4)                                                                       D (4 w/main riff)
         But now it's gettin' late, and the moon is climbin' high

    G (4)                                                          D (4 w/main riff)
         I want to celebrate, see it shinin' in your eye
