Requested by: mxhummel on 9/16/2016

Capo 2

    G                     G7                                C                           G
The moon is slowly rising, it's really not surprising after all, she's there most every night
G                                                       C                              D
Smiling on the lovers, always shining on the others and bathing in the sun's reflected light
    C                          D                               G                C 
But later on she'll fade away, hidden by the break of day that always comes too soon
Am                D/F#                  G
Poor little thing, she's just a jealous moon


She plays above the water, Watching sailors, tramps and daughters live their lives and slowly fade away
Night afternight, year after year once she knows she'll disappear into a world she never gets to stay
But she would give most anything to open up her heart and sing but no one hears her tune
Poor little thing, she's just a jealous moon


Bridge:
B7                     C
No one ask her how she got so high
A7                          D
Way up there forever in the lonely sky


She watches through the seasons, hoping without reason that someday someone will call her home
But life goes on without her, no one ever asks about her or lets her know that she's not alone
It breaks her heart that down below rivers run, flowers grow but she can't feel them bloom
Poor little thing, she's just a jealous moon


The nights are getting colder, stars are growing bolder as they paint their final light across the sky
But closer to the atmosphere, she prays for clouds to disappear so she could say goodnight and say goodbye
She never really goes away, just hidden by another day that always comes too soon
Poor little thing, she's just a jealous moon

Poor little thing, she's just a jealous moon
