There's A New Moon Over My Shoulder    (1944)

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 comin' 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 some day 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
