Today's song from the iTunes Library in

Moonlight in Vermont

Lyrics:John Blackburn
Music:Karl Suessdorf

The song was publishe 1944.

The lyrics are unusual in that they do not rhyme.
John Blackburn, the lyricist, has been quoted as saying,
"After completing the first 12 bars of the lyric,
I realized there was no rhyme and then said to Karl,
'Let’s follow the pattern of no rhyme throughout the song.
It seemed right.'"
The lyrics are also unconventional in that each verse
(not counting the bridge) is a haiku.

The song is considered an unofficial state song of Vermont
and is frequently played as the first dance song
at Vermont wedding receptions.
It was first introduced by Margaret Whiting in a 1944 recording,
and has been covered by numerous other artists over the years.
(Captain Beefheart's song "Moonlight on Vermont",
on his 1969 album Trout Mask Replica, is unrelated.)



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

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
Sweet warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont
