Lyrics

1. She came to me on a rising moon.

It was late July or maybe June.

But I can't remember as I was struck by the light of her smile.

2. She might have had a white dress on. A summer tan against the lawn.

But I can't remember as I was struck by the light of her smile.

Chorus: Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh! Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh! Oh boy!

Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh! Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh! A girl.

3. She smiled once then looked again. She called me boy maybe called me friend.

But I can't remember as I was struck by the light of her smile.

4. She wasn't sure that she was too. I might have said I love you.

But I can't remember as I was struck by the light of her smile.

[CHORUS]

Bridge: I'd been afraid to talk to her. I'd been watching her for awhile.

But then she smiled and winked at me

and said two words that changed my life; Hey, Buddy.

[CHORUS]

She came to me on a rising moon.

It was late July or maybe June.
