Who knows where it will blow and when....
Wild Wind

He was gone in the morning when I opened my eyes
A note on the table said ‘Now don’t be surprised.
Of course I love you, but I ain’t the staying kind
So it’s time to move on, I’ve made up my mind.


I don’t like goodbyes and I can’t handle tears
And maybe I’ll come back here one of these years.
Go on with your life, find a man who will stay
With the prettiest woman down Pettysville way.'

I've gone for a ride on the wild wind,
Gone off to someplace I've never been
Where I'll fall in love all over again
And then hitch a ride on the next restless wind.

Never was one for staying, for putting down roots
I get that ole itch in my black leather boots
And be on my way chasing some dream
Across the horizon, for a place yet unseen.


I knew from the start that he wouldn’t stay
But I’m glad that he asked me to dance that day
And stayed for a while, came in to my heart
For I was richer for it right from the start.

A poet, a wanderer, a teller of tales,
Should have been a sailor who followed the sails.
I’m sorry he’s gone, for I’ll miss his smile,
But I’m so glad he stayed, at least for a while.

He’s gone for a ride on the wild wind,
Gone off to someplace he’s never been--
Where he’ll fall in love all over again
And then hitch a ride on the next restless wind.


(together)

Maybe one day I’ll see him/her again
And maybe we’ll love ‘neath the restless wind
Where I'll fall in love all over again,
And then hitch a ride on the next wild wind.
(he'll)
