Kiki’s Musik: Moon River

I believe Ron had a hand in the song Moon River. He may have written some or most of it but I don’t know. I reviewed the lyrics for clues and it could have been Ron’s style at the time.

Moon River
Moon river, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style some day
Dream-maker, you old heart-breaker
Wherever you’re goin’, I’m goin’ your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waiting ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waiting ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
Songwriters: Johnny Mercer / Henry Mancini

I’m told he wrote the song but obviously has gotten no ostensible credit for it. A brilliant song used in the film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Ron would have written this around age 6 or 7 years old.
