Lyrics

Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves a sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont
Gentle finger waves
Ski trails down a mountain side
Snowlight in Vermont
Telegraph cables, how they sing down the highway
As they travel each bend in the road
And when people meet, in this romantic setting
They’re so hypnotized be the lovely…
Evening summer breeze
Sweet warblings of the meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont
