One Moonlight Night!

Banjo/Accordion intro

    Dm Bb 
One moonlight night in the bayou a silhouette
     F C 
The air was sweet and the fog was vi-o-let
     Dm Bb 
The gators were all drinking tea, in a dreamy pantsless glee
     F C 
I saw a suspendered man, a banjo holstered in his hands.
     Dm Bb                
He had biggest red suspenders I ever did see, golly gee that's what I've seen
     F C 
He flicked the brim of his hat, and this is what he said to me.

     Dm Bb 
"Mister robot ah am The Suspender Man
     F C 
And dis banjo 'as shown me dah promised land.
     Dm Bb 
Now ah play a song but in return, yoo put dat shiny coin right 'ere in mah urn.
     F C 
And ah play yoo sumfin fine. Mah music gonna blow yo mind!"

     Dm Gm  
So I flicked my coin into his pot, I gotta admit it twasn't a lot
                   Dm                
Two cents and then his fingers wriggled,
                   C 
he plucked those strings and belched a giggle.
                   Dm 
He tapped his foot, howled like a hound
      Gm Dm 
Igniting up the unholy sound.

                          Dm 
And I ain't never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never,
                          Am7 
never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never,
                          C Dm 
never, never, never, never, never, heard anything so great.

      Dm 
Call the vendors.
      Bb 
Big Suspenders.
      F C Dm 
That's what everybody wants to wear.
      Dm 
They stretch to Nantucket.
      Bb 
Put them in a bucket
      F C Dm 
And send them to the gnome trapped down the well
             Dm 
(Tug 'em with thumbs is ideal)
             Dm 
(While rollin' back on your heels)
  
  Dm (Let ring)
(Yeah)

He played the two cent show

             Dm 
And just like that he stopped playing
             Bb 
My jaw dropped to the floor.
             F 
He cracked his neck and smiled at me, And said,
             C                 
"Buddy, y'gotta pay for more!"

             Dm 
But by then a crowd had swarmed the swamp,
             Bb 
tossin' coin in after coin.
             Dm Dm 
So he cleared his throat, and his fingers writhed,
             Bb Dm 
and everyone shouted for Suspender Guy.

        Dm 
Call the vendors
        Bb 
Big Suspenders
        F C Dm          
That's what grandma wants for her birthday
        Dm 
They're bright red and awesome
        Bb 
Even worn by opossums
        F C Dm 
Nobody wants their pants to fall down
        
        Dm 
(Ma and Pappy want 'em too)
        Dm 
(Even the ghost of your Uncle Stu)
  
   Dm (let Ring)
(Yeah)

He played the two cent show
