I played bass in a classic rock band a few years ago while living the Applegate Valley in southern Oregon. This song arose spontaneously after playing one late summer night at a funky country beer garden, where the rare appearance of some lovely young women who were interning at a local organic farm took everybody’s breath away.

The Applegate girls are out tonight
Out tonight out tonight
In their gypsy clothes they step so light
As they dance to the harvest moon

There’s a chill in the air and a feeling there
The summer’s end is drawing near
But these young girls they do not care
As they dance to the harvest moon

Rings in their bellies and flying hair
Bare arms waving in the cool night air
The boys at the bar just sit and stare
As they dance to the harvest moon

They look so free as they swing and sway
You just can’t take your eyes away
And on and on the fiddle plays
As they dance to the harvest moon

The Applegate girls can move their hips
Make a man start scheming how to taste their lips
How to drink that beauty in thirsty sips
Underneath the harvest moon

But the Applegate girls they do not care
They swirl their skirts they toss their hair
And they barely notice anybody else there
As they dance to the harvest moon.

Like fairies in a magic ring
They circle round and start to sing
Their silver voices shimmering
As they dance to the harvest moon

The Applegate girls are out tonight
Out tonight, out tonight
There never ever ever was a prettier sight
As they dance to the harvest moon.
