Nanci Griffith – Once In A Very Blue Moon

Once in a Very Blue Moon

Nanci Griffith

I found your letter in my mailbox today
You were just checkin’ if I was okay
And if I still miss you
Well you know what they say

Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one comin’ on soon

No need to tell me you’d like to be friends
And help me get back on my feet again
And do I still miss you?
Well it’s just now and then

Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one comin’ on soon

There’s a blue moon shinin’
When I’m reminded
Of all we’ve been through
Such a blue moon shinin’
Does it ever shine down on you?

Oh, ’cause you act like
It never even hurt you at all
And I’m the only one
Gettin’ up from a fall
Tell me you dont feel it
Oh can’t you recall

Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
Just once in a very blue moon
And I feel one comin’ on soon

Nanci Griffith, Love at the Five and Dime

Nanci Griffith Love at the Five and Dime

Love at the Five & Dime

Nanci Griffith

Rita was sixteen years
Hazel eyes and chestnut hair
She made the Woolworth counter shine

And Eddie was a sweet romancer
And a darn good dancer
And they waltzed the aisles of the five and dime

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

Dance a little closer to me
Hey, it’s closing time
And love’s on sale
Tonight at this five and dime

Eddie played the steel guitar
And his mama cried ’cause he played in the bars
And he kept young Rita out late at night

Soon they married up in Abelene
Lost a child in Tennessee
But still that love survived

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

One of the boys in Eddie’s band
Took a shine to Rita’s hand
So , Eddie ran off with the bass man’s wife

Oh, but he was back by June
Singin’ a different tune
Sporting Miss Rita back by his side

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

Eddie played in the barroom band
‘Til arthritis took his hands
Now he sells insurance on the side

And Rita’s got her house to keep
She sells dime store novels with a love so sweet
And they dance to the radio late at night and still sing

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

Trouble in the Fields

Nanci Griffith

Baby I know that we’ve got trouble in the fields
When the bankers swarm like locust out there turning away our yield
The trains roll by our silos, silver in the rain
They leave our pockets full of nothing
But our dreams and the golden grain

Have you seen the folks in line downtown at the station
They’re all buying their ticket out and talking the great depression
Our parents had their hard times fifty years ago
When they stood out in these empty fields in dust as deep as snow

And all this trouble in our fields
If this rain can fall, these wounds can heal
They’ll never take our native soil
But if we sell that new John Deere
And then we’ll work these crops with sweat and tears
You’ll be the mule I’ll be the plow
Come harvest time we’ll work it out
There’s still a lot of love, here in these troubled fields

There’s a book up on the shelf about the dust bowl days
And there’s a little bit of you and a little bit of me
In the photos on every page
Now our children live in the city and they rest upon our shoulders
They never want the rain to fall or the weather to get colder

And all this trouble in our fields
If this rain can fall, these wounds can heal
They’ll never take our native soil
But if we sell that new John Deere
And then we’ll work these crops with sweat and tears
You’ll be the mule I’ll be the plow
Come harvest time we’ll work it out
There’s still a lot of love, here in these troubled fields

You’ll be the mule I’ll be the plow
Come harvest time we’ll work it out
There’s still a lot of love, here in these troubled fields

This song was written by the talented songwriter Julie Gold. Bette Midler had a fairly large hit with it, but I prefer Nanci Griffith’s version. This is from her 1987 album “Lone Star State Of Mind” (wow, has it been 25 years?), an album loaded with great songs, most of them written or co-written by
