It's Only a Paper Moon

Betsy, Tyler and Alex sing a sweet little version of the 1933 Harold Arlen classic, “It’s Only a Paper Moon.” Cardboard seas, canvas skies, muslin trees, ukulele and a little ol’ She’s Folks magic. A honkey tonk parade indeed! LYRICS: Say it’s only a paper moon Sailing over a cardboard sea But it wouldn’t be make believe If you believed in me Yes it’s only a canvas sky Hanging over a muslin tree But it wouldn’t be make believe If you believed in me Without your love It’s a honkey tonk parade Without your love It’s a melody played in a penny arcade It’s a Barnum and Bailey world Just as phony as it can be But it wouldn’t be make believe If you believed in me

Journey from the city to farm country and back again through folk and country music, hilarious stories, soaring harmonies, and a wry view of the folks back home with Elizabeth Morgan's She's Folks! With our signature Story, Song, and Sass, we narratively travel our native Midwestern byways, railroads, and fields by truck, train and tractor, introducing the audience to original tunes, as well as beloved folk songs, covers, and hymns. She's Folks! is a love letter to the country from a kid who couldn't wait to leave. Where do we belong if we walk away? We reckon, "Home isn't the place; it's the folks."
Keep up with the folks!
