Written by Hoagy Carmichael & Johnny Mercer


I long for that moon country
That possum and coon country
That sycamore heaven back south
I'll lose my mind till I get there


I long for that old country
That good for the soul country
With folk cooking things
That melt in your mouth


Mmm, when my cousin, Cindy Lou
Plays a twilight hymn to you
She makes that old piano
Sound exactly like brand new


I long for that moon country
Thats where I should be
Cause that old moon country
Is home to me
