Shame On The Moon by Rodney Crowell. Till you've been beside a man. You don't knowwhat he wants. Until you've been beside a man. You don't know who he knows. Ooh blame IT on midnight. Uuh shame on the moon.
It was written by Rodney Crowell, who recorded it on his 1981 self-titled album. The plaintive song reflects on the burdens and compulsions every man carries, which seem to be most acute around midnight (maybe it has something to do with the moon). The only person who can really understand him is the one who lies beside him. Some Eagles are part of this story. Don Henley is the one of turned Seger on to Crowell. When Seger bought the Crowell's album, he loved "Shame On The Moon" and played it for his band.
