GUEST,Teresa WWI or Span Am War song? Mister moon-a-man (19) RE: WWI or Span Am War song? Mister moon-a-man 22 Aug 15


My dad sang this to me every night. His version is, "Oh mister moon, moon, bright and shiny moon, hidin behind that tree...Well there's a fella there to get ya with a gatlin gun, and he's gonna get ya boy, you better run, Oh Mister moon, moon, bright and shiny moon, please shine down on, talk about your shine on, please shine down on me. Then he'd add, "Ba da da da!" and I'd click my tongue twice at the end. Dad passed away March 1st of this year (2015). He was 83 years old and born and raised in Texas. I always wondered where he learned this song. I never asked him, but tonight I was curious and googled it and found this site. Thank you. Great memories and I liked reading all the versions of the song. There's a choral group singing it on youtube from Arkansas too.
