Oh, Shine on, shine on, harvest moon
Up in the sky;
I ain’t had no lovin’
Since April, January, June or July.
Snow time ain’t no time to stay
Outdoors and spoon;
So shine on, shine on, harvest moon,
For me and my gal.

“Shine On, Harvest Moon,” 1908 by the married vaudeville team Nora Bayes and Jack Norworth.

Nearly a century later, Neil Young gave us another Harvest Moon love song.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.
