Lyrics:

East by Moonlight

Walking East by moonlight and guided by the starlight
I came across a stream and stopped to rest.
While sitting upon a boulder that for centuries was weathered.
I gazed upon the stream and caught my breath.

The stars they took to dancing in the late autumn horizon.
As they revealed themselves to me in the broken water.
A virgin snow had landed on this land that seemed enchanted,
and my thoughts escaped my tasks and turned to her.

Oh where in these stars could I look tonight,
To find a way to be with her?
Oh where should I be roving if not East by moonlight?
Perhaps I'll never make it.

She was a stable maiden, and a bedkeep to my Master.
Her common auburn hair was tightly woven.
She resided near the main house, that was nestled by the heather.
And her perfect hazel eyes could trap the ocean.

Oh dark October sky, please comfort me for just a little longer
With the visions of my love that we both hold dear.
There is a longing in my heart that helps me grow a little stronger,
But it might not be enough I gravely fear.

Oh where in these stars could I look tonight,
To find a way to be with her?
Oh where should I be roving if not East by moonlight?
Perhaps I'll never make it.
