Words & Music:

Van Morrison


This is transcribed in the February 2009 issue of Acoustic Guitar - including a pretty good instrumental solo thrown in the middle.


[verse vamp is Am7 to Bm7 - capo 2 for women to sing]


Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance

With the stars up above in your eyes.

A fantabulous night to make romance

'Neath the cover of October skies.

And all the leaves on the trees are falling

To the sound of the breezes that blow.

And I'm trying to please to the calling

Of your heartstrings that play soft and low.



             Dm7     Am7            Dm7         Am7

You know the night's magic seems to whisper and hush.

            Dm7  Am7                Dm7           E

And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush.



    Am7    Dm7      Am7      Dm7        Am7     Dm7

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love?

    Am7    Dm7       Am7     Dm7       Am7     Dm7   E

Can I just make some more romance with you, my love?


Well I wanna make love to you tonight, I can't wait 'til the morning has come.

And I know now the time is just right and straight into my arms you will run.

And when you come my heart will be waiting

To make sure that you're never alone.

There and then all my dreams will come true, dear,

There and then I will make you my own.


And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside.

And I know how much you want me that you can't hide.









One more moondance with you in the moonlight on a magic night?

La, la, la, la, there's a moonlight on a magic night.

Can I just have one more dance with you, my love?
