Howdy,

I supposedly learned the song from the two sources already cited, but I quickly folk processed it to meet my limitations and my own feelings about the arrangement.

My version goes something like this:

WATCH THE STARS
Traditional

[G]Watch the stars, [D7]see how they [G]run.
[C]Watch the stars, see how they [G]run.
The [C]stars run by at the [G]setting of the [Em]sun.
[G]Watch the stars, [D7]see how they [G]run.

Watch the moon, see how it shines.
Watch the moon, see how it shines.
The moon runs down at the sun setting time.
Watch the moon, see how it shines.

Watch the wind, see how it blows.
Watch the wind, see how it blows.
The wind blows by at the setting of the sun.
Watch the wind, see how it blows.

Watch the stars, see how they run.
Watch the moon, see how it shines.
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oo.
Watch the wind, see how it blows.

Watch the stars, see how they run.

Hope that will help you some. It's a great feeling song for me when I'm singing it.

Allinkausay,
Bill
