Moonlight in Vermont is one the few American lyrics that does not rhyme AND portions are pure haiku, including correct number of syllables (17) AND necessary seasonal references. Perhaps you already know that? But maybe not. I figured this out on my own a long time ago pre-internet. The lyricist, John Blackburn, died very recently (2006) at age 93. I believe that this was his only hit lyric. But it probably earned him enough to live comfortably on.Singer Johnny Holiday once told me Blackburn wrote another terrific song, "She Doesn't Laugh Like You," but his is the only recording. Music by Benny Carter.
M in V: Beautiful song. One of my favorites.
