"No Moon" as written by and Samuel Ervin Beam....
Black dog bit through the keeper's chain
Small and angry when the Devil came
Sold my soul like a pocket knife
There was no moon, there'll be no milk as sweet

Tomcat curled on a rabbit cage
Brittle fingers in the potter's clay
Sold my soul and I laid her down
There was no moon, there'll be no milk as sweet

Blue bird laughs on a fallen tree
Sunset burns on a quiet sea
Sold my soul and they ran me down
There was no moon, there'll be no milk as sweet

    General Commentdo you think there might be some link between these lines of "No Moon"...what could they mean in sam's lyrics.... I'd just love to open sam's brain and see what's inside(figuratively speaking)... he just uses some amazing imagery

    General CommentI think he uses a lot of the same imagery to symbolize different things... this song I think is about a loss of innocence. "Sold my soul like a pocket knife".... "Sold my soul and I laid her down"... and then the line "There'll be no milk as sweet", like it can't ever be as good as that first time. Just my thoughts.

    General CommentAs the song progresses, the imagery he uses to describe himself becomes both freer and less arrogant- dog to tom cat to bird- and happier as well.
