“Moon Over the Rio Grande” Lyrics

I want to watch the moon rise
Over the Rio Grande
Stand in contemplation
Hand in gentle hand
Breathing the beauty
Of the pink and purple land
High on the inspiration
Of the moon
Over the Rio Grande

The endless desperation
Of deadline after deadline
The constant agitation
Of the headlines of the play
Brings the inclination
To make a little free time
And watch nature’s message
As she goes about her day

So I want to watch the moon rise
Over the Rio Grande
Stand in contemplation
Hand in gentle hand
Breathing the beauty
Of the pink and purple land
High on the inspiration
Of the moon
Over the Rio Grande

So many conversations
Simply have no meaning
The failed communications
Fall upon the floor
There’s something in the spirit
Of the language of the land
The eloquent precision
Nothing less and nothing more

So I want to watch the moon rise
Over the Rio Grande
Stand in contemplation
Hand in gentle hand
Breathing the beauty
Of the pink and purple land
High on the inspiration
Of the moon
Over the Rio Grande

[break]

I want to watch the moon rise
Over the Rio Grande
Stand in contemplation
Hand in gentle hand
Breathing the beauty
Of the pink and purple land
High on the inspiration
Of the moon
Over the Rio Grande
High on the inspiration
Of the moon
High on the inspiration
Of the moon
High on the inspiration
Of the moon
Over the Rio Grande
