The Everybody Needs Love Songfacts says: This rootsy ballad is a single from the American Alternative Country band Drive-By Trucker's ninth album, Go-Go Boots . The song is a cover of a recording by the group's fellow Muscle Shoals artist Eddie Hinton .
Drive-By Truckers' Patterson Hood described Hinton as, "if Otis Redding met Howlin' Wolf somewhere in the middle."
The moonbeams we can dream on
And the working day is done
And there's stars we can wish upon
At the setting of the sun
