Moon Over Miami

Moon Over Miami

Liner Notes: 

A day late for the Sunday skirmish but couldn't resist the challenge! The deeper I got into this song - the more like Betty Boop I wanted to sing it! I may actually really ham it up and re-sing it at a later date. Thoughts?

The biggest time waster was setting myself up for perfect or near rhymes in my verses based on the first line of each...if I had more time I could probably have come up with something better but where's the fun in that? I almost used Alabami instead of Atlanta but thought that would throw the tone somewhat. And Sahara - I got lucky to find Nevada...seesh...

Anyhoo! I digress into song geekdom! Biggrin

I wanna see the moon over Miami
Clouds over New York
The sun over Atlanta
Stars of Baltimore
Oh won’t you take my hand darling
And show me the world

I wanna see the pigeons in Paris
The fountains in Rome
Museums in Athens
The lakes in Stockholm
Oh won’t you take my hand darling
And show me the world

I ain’t seen nothing but these four walls
Got no souvenirs no memories at all
I need a traveller a rambler a street wiser
Who can guide me

I wanna touch the sand on the Sahara
Grass on the Plains
Climb a mountain in Nevada
Leave footprints every place
Oh won’t you take my hand darling
And show me the
take my hand darling
And show me the world

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Nice trip around the world! Lots of great rhymes. I think Sawyer Brown has a song with this title. You probably don't want to come to Nevada now as it is 110 degrees outside right now. I will listen to the audio now...hold. Nice singing and melody. Good guitar playing. Bridge works nicely. Love the outro. Very good song I like it. Smile

Another moon song! I'm trying to listen to as many as I can, and yours is awesome!
Everything about this song absolutely delights me. Guitar/vocal is absolutely the right way to express yourself here.
I live two hours from Miami, and I've never been.

Ooh, it’s like watching a show!

Bring on the muted trumpet solo...

What a cracking song. I listened twice to this for those great lyrics, chords, and performance!
