Many Moons
Words and Music by Beth Wheeler
(Inspired by the short story "Many Moons" by James Thurber)

			       D          G            D          C
			There once was a princess who wanted the moon
			        D       C          D       F
			So her parents gave her a disc of gold
			      D              C           D
			And thought she was foolish for asking
			      C           F           D
			For something so high in the sky.

As they never looked up at the sky themselves They forgot that the princess might not do the same And not all the king's horses, nor all the king's men Could keep the moon from rising again.
