River of the Moon, Chattahoochee

River of the Moon

River of the Moon

When early man first came, the river was a mystery, had no name,

Superstition reigned, until one night, in a moon so bright, it came.

River of the Moon, you great provider, home of the musical loon,

Your waters satisfy our thirst, there where the wild are all in tune.


Refrain:

Shine on us, River of the Moon, Chattahoochee, brightly shine,

No music to be your equal, of your memories, so divine.

Play us a tune River Moon, as your water's ripple so fine.

Great river, our all of life giver, a home of the strong and the meek,

Your water world, a treasure, as gold, none greater, we may seek.

Birds wing to your sanctuary, follow your estuary, a maternal source,

Precious river's purity, a surety, irrigating throughout your course.


Refrain:

Shine on us, River of the Moon, Chattahoochee, brightly shine,

No music to be your equal, of your memories, so divine.

Play us a tune River Moon, in your water's ripple so fine.

Our lives we owe to you, oh River of the Moon, we are sincere,

Reflections so grand, a night time river band, sounds we hear.

Birds, frogs, fury creatures all join in, in such beauty, transcend,

Carrying over wild woods and glens, their joyful notes to send.


Refrain:

Shine on us, River of the Moon, Chattahoochee, brightly shine,

No music to be your equal, of your memories, so divine.

Play us a tune River Moon, in your water's ripple so fine.

Born in a high mountain's top, your waters spring forth, flowing on,

Down through the valleys and across the dales, goes a joyful song.

River of the Moon, purveyor of the ages, in solitude you do persist,

Your sanctity, generosity, a friend, by your benevolent gifts, all exist.


Refrain:

Shine on us, River of the Moon, Chattahoochee, brightly shine,

No music, to be your equal, of your memories, so divine.

Play us a tune River Moon, in your water's ripple so fine.
