GET OUT AND GET UNDER THE MOON. American, Two-Step (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. "Get out and get under the Moom" is from the repertoire of Franklin County, north-central Kentucky, fiddler Kelly Gilbert (1895-1991), recorded in the field by John Harrod in 1978. The title is shared with the popular song "Get out and get under the moon" written by Larry Shay, the lyrics by Charles Tobias and William Jerome, published in 1928. It was recorded that year by Helen Kane and by Paul Whiteman, but has been recorded often since then, including by Doris Day, Nat King Cole and Michael Feinstein. Early country music 78 RPM vocalist and guitarist Riley Puckett also recorded the song in 1940[1]. However, Kelly Gilbert's melody is a different one than the song melody.
