Wayward Wind

written by Stanley R. Lebowsky, Herbert Newman

My mother likes hundreds of songs but my dad has one favourite: Wayward Wind, so it had to be included in this disc.

 

 

Oh 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.
But I guess the sound of the outward bound
Made him a slave to his wandering ways.

Oh 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.
Tho’ he tried his best to settle down
Now I’m alone with a broken heart.

Though 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.
