Lyrics
The Loon and the Hula Moon

The Fog comes tumblin’
Up the Coastline’s edge, And
Inside my head,
Ideas are tumblin’
And Rumblin’
Too.

The Thunder stopped,
The Rain will, Soon,
While Waves beat the Rock,
Where stands the Loon
Lookin’ So long and hard
At the Sea.

Don’t know What it is
He wants
More and More
As he keeps lookin’ Harder
To See
What he doesn’t
See.

Sun goes fallin’
In the Clouds,
Then’ll come the Dark,
But, It ain’t Loud.
‘Cept for the lightening in my Brain,
Blindin’
Me.

North wind Comes
Blastin’ and Dancin’
Blowin’ the Rain
‘Gainst my Face
But it don’t replace
The numbness ‘round my Heart
Where the Love for You
Used to be.

Just when It Is
I
Can’t
See

There, coming
Right towards Me

An Old Friend.
She waves.
Calls my name,
Like a Tune.

The Rain it stopped
The Wind’s gone Low,
She’s Striding Along.
She’ll be Here, Soon
On the Waves ‘hind her
I see
She’s Brought the

Hula Moon.
Yeah,
The Hula Moon
She’s brought the Hula Moon.

Of All Things!
(And tell your money, Be Shy)
Her Wan Smile
Is a Lullaby
To the This and the That,
That They Say to Prove that
They’re Better than You.

RIGHT HERE.
Big as
ALL and ALL.
The Hula Moon is Her
Parasol.

She’s bringing Gifts and
Nobody
Even ever
Asked her to.

The Loon raises his Wings above His head,
He’s seeing what he saw,
And All the Saying’s been Said

He
Steps into Flight
Swoops into the Night

And over the Tree tops

He’s Swooping,

Toward His
Hula
Moon

Yeah,
He’s Swooping towards
The Hula Moon.

HEY, BROTHER
The STRAT - neck pick up through a Vox AC30 with no top boost (enough as it is).

Love hearing from you and hope you're gigging out in Michigan, keeping it Live!

Very Best,

GRAND DADDY ONCE SAID

OR maybe I said it, "I write songs so I can play guitar." I find I tend to lean heavy on the guitars - as you noted!

Thank you for the kind words cause I like this one, too.

very best to you,
Cooper

POINT TAKEN

THE VOICE I sing with is all I was given. That said, I'm just telling the story the best I can. The best "voice" on any of my stuff is ALWAYS The Strat! That's where the melodies live. If it weren't for the lyrics, I'd do instrumentals.

Thank you for the Spin cause it's always good to hear from you.

with best regards,
Cooper

The guitar work is beautifully tasteful and love the strong lyrical ending. To this, and to that, makes me want to jam with you. Great job Coop!

This is
so cool that I download. I want to have it in my collection and hear it again from time to time. Really nice song! In my preference it could go on for about 10 minutes more.
