When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again

Lyrics: Gene Sullivan, Wiley Walker
Music: Gene Sullivan, Wiley Walker

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Black Mountain Boys in March 1964. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics.

Memories that linger in my heart
Memories that make my heart grow cold
Maybe they'll live again sweetheart
When my blue moon again will turn to gold

Chorus
When my blue moon turns to gold again
When the rainbow turns the clouds away
When my blue moon turns to gold again
You'll be back in my arms to stay

The castles we built of dreams together
Were the sweetest stories ever told
In my dreams they live again sweetheart
And my blue moon again will turn to gold

[chorus]
There's another verse in the original that I don't believe was sung by the Black Mountain Boys:
The lips that used to thrill me so
Your kisses were meant for only me
In my dreams they live again sweetheart
But my golden moon is just a memory
