On Memorial Day 2017, I took some time with my family and our music mix popped one of my old podcast episodes, "The Thinnest Moon" which was a studio release that you can download free right here on Danny Hauger Podcasts. While I was thinking about the song, and how much my daughter enjoyes listening to my recordings, I thought it would be great to re-record this rarely played song from my collection. I was excited to plug in and I actually recorded the entirety of the song in one take! I diversified this version bya dding cajon for some rhythm, which flowed freely and rather wildly around the guitar strumming, and took a few overdubs for the vocal harmony that make this song unique in my collection. I hope you will enjoy listening to it and give it a like, subscribe, or share. Download the mp3 from Danny Hauger free music podcasts!
Lyrics - The Thinnest Moon by Danny Hauger
Waxing and waning moon Mid night and after noon Awaiting lunar phase To guide me through this maze
The intervals you grow Are not for me to know With Venus by your side To be your guiding light
With every shape you take, every ellipse you make Your speed defines my mood My every loss and good
The thinnest moon to guide me home The thinnest moon to make my own
For if my sight by sun Makes me the only one Walking in darkness in blinds Standing free of sunshine
The thinnest moon to guide me home The thinnest moon to make me whole
And if I should go, Would you let let me know? Would you guide me home? Would you let me go?
