“Shooting Star”

Moonlight on the prairie.
Sky is glowin’ where the
Star is shootin’
Left to the right.

I’ll name that shooting star for you,
Never far from you.
Shining light on your face.
And if you look, you’ll see it there.
Could be anywhere.
Night or day, any place.

Texas sky has brightened,
Prairie dogs are frightened,
Fearful of the
Brilliance above.

And if you catch that shooting star,
Keep it never far
From the palm of your hand.
For once that bright star has your name,
Life won’t be the same.
And your star understands.

Tumble-weed is blowin’.
Mockin’ birds are crowin’.
Red-tail hawk is
Perched on a limb.

When I have named that shooting star,
She’ll know where you are.
Makin’ clouds go away.
But if a dark night brings you tears,
Your star re-appears
Next time night follows day.

I named the shooting star for you,
Never far from you.
Shinin’ light on your face.
And if you look, you’ll see it there.
Could be anywhere.
Night or day, any place.

I named that shooting star for you,
Never far from you.
Shinin’ light on your face.
And it will be just right for you,
Beamin’ bright for you.
Night or day, any place,
Shinin’ light on your face.
