There's a new moon over my shoulder
And an old love, still in my heart
I remember, now that I'm older
What you told me, the day we had to part

You promised, with the new moon
You'd be coming back to me
But many moons have passed since then
I'm waiting patiently

There's a new moon over my shoulder
And an old love, still in my heart

There's a new moon over my shoulder
And an old love, still in my heart
Now I'm wishing I had been bolder
Then perhaps, we would not be so far apart

You promised you would write me
But so far, there's not a line
But still I wait and make believe
That someday, you'll be mine

There's a new moon over my shoulder
And an old love, still in my heart

And so I keep on praying
For your safe return someday
And that we'll be the same sweethearts
As when you went away

There's a new moon over my shoulder
And an old love, still in my heart

    This song means a lot to me as it reminds me of when i was a child in the forties during the war. My aunt was a wren in the navy and she would come to visit us when she was on leave. She would bring her guitar and play & sing all these wonderful songs including this one. She also knew all the songs of ernest tubb, wilf carter, tex ritter but her favourite was gene autry who was the new kid on the block at the time. So this is why all these old songs mean so much to me and i treasure every one of them

    New moons are invisible. Only when the moon begin to wax crescent can you see the moon. The phrase "new moon over my shoulder makes no sense in relation to this song.
