Biography

"Folk/Americana Guitarist known throughout the ski resort towns of the intermountain western US. His sound is steeped in the Folk/Rock tradition of the Late 60's and early 70's with a bit of the modern Country production. Hahn is known as a very versatile vocalist and a master acoustic guitarist. A painter of lyric and melody with intelligent multi-faceted thought-provoking songs".
Dave was born in Chicago in '59, raised in Phoenix, but now lives in Utah.
Self taught to play guitar starting about 1968, drawing from the playing styles of artists such as; James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Paul Simon and Gordon Lightfoot etc.
"He is a unique combination of songcrafter and chameleon. His original music is strong and inviting, but his ability to emulate other artists when covering popular songs is amazing."
Some newspaper reviewers have a tendency to classify Dave as "Country/Western" (that is usually the ones who don't listen to Country) Although Dave covers a large repertoir of country songs, his CD's of original songs really fit more in the Americana, Easy Listening, Folk & Pop genres.

Lyrics

I Don't Mind

Written By: Dave Hahn

Got A little Change in my pocket
Got A little dance in my shoes
Seems it's never enough
makin' ends meet gets so tough
that I find myself knee-deep in the blues

But, I don't mind, Oh, no
how the seasons they come, they go
I don't mind, Oh, no
'cause change is the only sure thing I know

Got a woman who loves me
Got a few children too
But the children move on
and it won't be that long
'fore them angels come and take us home too

But, I don't mind, Oh, no
how the seasons they come, they go
I don't mind, Oh, no
'cause change is the only sure thing I know

I wrote a few songs from my memories
wrote a few songs for my wife
But, I wrote this song
for all them things that go wrong
and how the Lord always seems to make 'em go right

But, I don't mind, Oh, no
how the seasons they come, they go
I don't mind, Oh, no
'cause change is the only sure thing I know

Got A little Change in my pocket
Got A little dance in my shoes
Now I got this song
for all them things that go wrong
and lay me up knee-deep in my blues

But, I don't mind, Oh, no
how the seasons they come, they go
I don't mind, Oh, no
'cause change is the only sure thing I know

Until They're Gone

STARLIT NIGHTS, THROUGH PALE BLUE LIGHT
FROM THE LAMPPOSTS LINING ROADS THAT LED US HOME
A COOL BREEZE BLOWS, A MOONLIT GLOW
REFLECTING THROUGH THE TREES NOW ICED WITH SNOW
IT'S LIKE A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
NO ROADS LEFT BETWEEN US, NO WORDS ARE LEFT TO SAY
IT'S LIKE A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
PHOTOGRAPHS AND MEMORIES, ON PAGES LEFT TO FADE
...UNTIL THEY'RE GONE

SLEEPLESS HOURS, THROUGH THE TOWERS
THE SHIMMERING OF CITY STREETS BELOW
MIDNIGHT AIR, WITH CAFE FARE
SPENT SIFTING THROUGH THE SECRETS OF OUR SOULS
IT'S LIKE A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
THE HOPES WE GAVE TOMORROW, ARE FADING INTO GREY
IT'S LIKE A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
OLD GUITARS AND PHONOGRAPHS, ARE ALL THAT STILL REMAINS
...UNTIL THEY'RE GONE

MIDNIGHT STILL REMINDS ME OF YOU
HOW THE MOONLIGHT DANCES OFF THE STREETS
IN HAUNTING SHADES OF BLUE
STILL THE DAY BREAKS IN AND FADES MY THOUGHTS OF YOU,
AND THINGS WE'VE DONE
...UNTIL THEY'RE GONE

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE…

IT'S LIKE A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
NO ROADS LEFT BETWEEN US, NO WORDS ARE LEFT TO SAY
IT'S LIKE A THOUSAND MILES AWAY
JUST PHOTOGRAPHS AND MEMORIES, ON PAGES LEFT TO FADE
...UNTIL THEY'RE GONE

MIDNIGHT STILL REMINDS ME OF YOU
HOW THE MOONLIGHT DANCES OFF THE STREETS
IN HAUNTING SHADES OF BLUE
STILL THE DAY BREAKS IN AND FADES MY THOUGHTS OF YOU
AND THINGS WE'VE DONE
…UNTIL THEY'RE GONE

Summer Wind

Written By: David G Hahn

Left Phoenix forty miles away
in a sixty-eight Chevrolet
Watched the moon rising,
silhouetting her windswept hair

Heading out to Santa Fe
never made it half the way
Got caught up in a desert wind
that led us through a dream somewhere

Soft blue light reflecting from her eyes
Singing soft and low we drove on through the night

Summerwind
Blowin deep inside my mind
Summerwind
Brings her round another time
While the years have come and gone by fast
Her memory reaches from my past
When each Summer comes
the night wind calls her back
Summerwind

Near the Superstition mountain range
after all these years it felt so strange
An old Impala by the roadside
like the one she used to drive back then

Then I hear her softly call my name
By the moonlight now I see her face
We smile and hold each other
for a moment time would never end

Soft blue light reflecting from her eyes
Singing soft and low we danced on through the night

Summerwind
Blowin deep inside my mind
Summerwind
Brings her round another time
While the years have come and gone by fast
Her memory reaches from my past
When each Summer comes
the night wind calls her back
Summerwind
