How Moon Pies Gave Me You

(Tune: Moonglow)

IT MUST HAVE BEEN MOON PIES

THAT GAVE ME THE CLUE

IT MUST HAVE BEEN MOON PIES

THAT LED ME STRAIGHT TO YOU

 

THE GRAHAM-CRACKER COOKIES

SURROUND ALL THE WHITE

YUM, MARSHMALLOW FILLING

CHOCOLATE-COVERED DELIGHT

 

 I….CAN STILL REMEMBER WHERE

THAT HARDWARE STORE

OH, ANOTHER “RC AND MOON PIE” AFFAIR

 

AND NOW THAT THERE’S MOON PIES

ALL OVER THIS LAND

ONE HAS AN EXCUSE NOW

FOR VERY, STICKY HANDS

 

YOU….AND I WERE MEANT TO BE

PART OF THE GREAT, BIG

CHATTANOOGA MOON PIE FAMILY

 

MY SONG AND MY STORY’S

ABOUT TO CONCLUDE

BUT, I’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER

THAT MOON PIES GAVE ME YOU

THAT MOON PIES GAVE ME YOU

THAT MOON PIES….GAVE…..ME…..YOU!
