"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 song was also recorded by Jo Stafford in 1946, Willie Nelson in 1978, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong in 1956, and Frank Sinatra in 1957.

Music sheets - what is all about? Back in the 19th century, songs in the United States were popularized by musicians through music sheets.
