Wayward Wind

I have no real clue why I’m compelled to post this song, and lyrics…but I’m gonna “blame” Teresa, at The Haunted Wordsmith, because she’s convenient🙂  She has a fairly new challenge going on, related to the elements…and she’s begun with “air”.  I’m enjoying it. 

Now I need to tell you I’ve had no sleep for well over 24 hrs, so maybe that has influenced my offering.  Rather than go to bed after I’d done some dawn grocery shopping, I sat down at the blog like I’m in a trance…and out of the blue, the first lines to this song I hadn’t heard in forever started playing in my head!  I’m like, “what the heck??”  So I hopped over to Google and YouTube—and just had to share it.  It’s a wonderful ballad, and Miss Grant has a lovely voice.

So there ya go…this crazy (musical) moment, related to “air”, has been brought to you by “the mad poet of April”, yours truly   And if you’re unfamiliar with Teresa’s seriously busy and creative blog, click her link above.  I guess you could say this is my version of a “shout out”, Teresa!🙂

The Wayward Wind
The wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind
In a lonely shack by a railroad track
He spent his younger days
And I guess the sound of the outward-bound
Made him a slave to his wand’rin ways
And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind
Oh I met him there in a border town
He vowed we’d never part
Though he tried his best to settle down
I’m now alone with a broken heart
And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind
The next of kin to the wayward wind
Songwriters: Herbert Newman / Stanley R. Lebowsky
