Well the sun is surely sinking down
But the moon is slowly rising
So this old world must still be spinning 'round
And I still love you

He sang this today in NYC at the 9-11 commemoratio n . Just him with guitar. Very moving.
My favorite JT tune - I"m a huge fan.
..."No ones going to take that time away. You can stay as long as you like." Nice.
First time listener. Great song! Loved JT since High School.

my mother loved this song and sang it to me often as a child
Grew up singing this song,was a great comfort on many a lonley night! Just seems to be over way to quick! His music may have saved me in younger years!! Never said thanks.Thank s James Taylor! Your music may have saved my life!!!
I also sing this as a lullaby to my daughter...n i c e !
so sweet & clean, mellow & great for sipping wine with your partner.
I held my infant tightly, every night to this song. His father was an abusive drunk. So everynight, I would lock myself and our baby, in his babyroom and would sleep beside him on the floor to keep him safe. He just turned 18!!

i sung this to my daughter at bedtime as well. haven't heard it in quite some time since she is now 17. talk about teary eyed...
I sang this song every night to my three kids when they were young as part of our bedtime routine. It's a great lullaby.
Good Night Mommy :D
