Shadows In The Moonlight (Shaw Tommy)

She was raised in Kentucky in a good christian home They had plans for her future that to them were carved in stone He came from West Virginia to work down at the mill From his tiny window he could see her house op on the hill The first time that he saw her she was in her Sunday dress He came to church in his working clothes trying to look his best Somewhere between the... and the congregation's rise They caught a crystal vision of their future In each other's eyes Across that big city river, what's done has been done No one knows who we are, no one knows where we're from We'll raise off a family, we'll build us a home But tonight, we're just shadows in the moonlight The father heard a line of land against the bathroom wall Came outside waving a pistol yelling "leave my child alone!" She ran for the wagon while they struggled for the gun It went off, like a cannon, someone cried My God, what have I done Across that big city river, what's done has been done No one knows who we are, no one knows where we're from We'll raise off a family, we'll build us a home But tonight, we're just shadows in the moonlight Across that big city river, what's done has been done No one knows who we are, no one knows where we're from And I hope it will be forgiveness in the days yet to come But tonight, we're just shadows in the moonlight Yeas tonight, we're just shadows in the moonlight.
