Out into the moonlight
I could never fail
Down by the turkey creek
To find that old trail
The river she's a flowin'
I'm rememberin' the night
Before I knew she was goin'
She was clean outta sight
That muddy water keeps on rollin'
Like the buffalo, she keeps movin' on
From that bayou town my heart was stolen
Like the water rollin' out with the tide
She was here and gone
There ain't no magic in the moonlight
No feelin' in the wind
But I know the stars are just as bright
Somewhere around the bend
She takes a bit of everthin'
Just which ever way she flows
Now a thought is all she brings
And that's the way it goes
