Description
Back in the late 70s I was living in a rusty, burned-out trailer down by the tracks in Ft. Wayne, many miles from home and just broke up with my girlfriend. What better inspiration for a song? "Michigan is on my mind tonight." This is my boys, Three Husbands on the Loose, performing one of our "hits."

Lyrics
The autumn breeze is blowin’
The ev’ning’s nearly gone
A hazy night approaches as I walk along
Yellow moon, risin’ through the sky
Yellow moon, makes me want to cry

The yellow moon remembers
Things I’d rather not
It stirs the dying embers which are best forgot
Yellow moon, risin’ through the sky
Yellow moon, makes me want to cry

CHORUS:
Those young, forgotten mem’ries stand naked in the light
And Michigan is on my mind tonight
My troubled mind is weary - this night has come to soon
To leave me here beneath the yellow moon.

Things we think are over
Are hiding in the night
Nothing more than feelings in a different light
Yellow moon, risin’ through the sky
Yellow moon, makes me want to cry

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
