"Moon Song" as written by and Patricia J. Griffin....
followed your road till the sky ran out
followed your love till love was in doubt
followed your love till it never really was at all

feeling stupid and hollow
now the moon's gonna follow me home

waited for you till the snow fell down
over my skin like a thin nightgown
waited for you to never came around at all
waited for you till they pulled the plug
bartender emptied out his big tip jug
they swept all the floors
vacuumed the rugs and went home

drank all i can swallow
now the moon's gonna follow me home

time go easy on me tonight
i'm one of the lost sheep alright
take what you must
take what you must
of what i've lost as i have roamed
and let the moon follow me home

followed your tears with a washing pail
followed your story followed your tale
followed you straight through the doors of your jail cell too
followed your voice in the darkness soft
a wind came through and carried it off
followed your love till it never really was at all

drank all i could swallow
now the moon's gonna follow me home

drank all i could swallow
now the moon's gonna follow me home

    Song Meaningthis song is amazing. i think it is about the man she loved passing away. he was her everything and now she is just floating by. this has to be one of the best songs ever written. the imagery and the heartache are almost unbearable.
