About the Song
"Moonlight in Vermont" is a popular song about the U.S. state of Vermont, written by John Blackburn and Karl Suessdorf and published in 1943. The lyrics are very unusual for an American pop song of the 1940s, because they do not rhyme and are impersonal, focusing mostly on the sensory appeal of the Vermont countryside while alluding briefly to romance. The lyrics are also metrically subtle—each verse (not counting the bridge) is a haiku. The song is considered an unofficial state song of Vermont and is frequently played as the first dance song at Vermont wedding receptions. An early version was recorded by Margaret Whiting in 1943. The song was also recorded by Jo Stafford in 1946, Willie Nelson in 1978, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong in 1956, Earl Grant in 1961 and Frank Sinatra in 1957. Captain Beefheart recorded a song called "Moonlight on Vermont" for his album Trout Mask.    Download this sheet!
