Blanket on the ground   (midi)

 

G A

1. Come and look out through the window, that big old moon is shinin' down,

D G

tell me now, don't it remind you of a blanket on the ground ?

Remember back when love first found us, we'd go slippin' out of town,

D G

and we'd love beneath the moonlight on a blanket on the ground.

 

G7 C G

I'll get the blanket from the bedroom and we'll go walking once again,

D G - G7

to that spot down by the river where our sweet love first began.

C G

Just because we are married, don't mean we can't slip around,

D D7 G

so let's walk out through the moonlight and lay the blanket on the ground.

 

A ~ A B7

2. Oh remember how excited we used to get when love was young,

E A

that old moon was our best buddy, we couldn't wait for night to come.

B7

Now you know you still excite me, I know you love me like I am,

E A

just once more I wish you'd love me on a blanket on the ground.

 

A7 D A

I'll get the blanket from the bedroom and we'll go walking once again,

E A - A7

to that spot down by the river where our sweet love first began.

D A

Just because we are married, don't mean we can't slip around,

E E7 A

so let's walk out through the moonlight and lay the blanket on the ground.
