AS LONG AS THE WIND BLOWS
 

No one can ever hold the wind

So donít waste your time holding on to me

Just let me love then Iíll be gone again

For thereís one thing little girl you must see

 

As long as the winds blow as long as the rivers flow

As long as the train whistles scream

As long as the wild goose flies as long as the flood tides rise

Thereís just no way of holding me

           

Mister this chain gang can never hold

A man with such a wandering restless soul

Just turn your back and thatís the last time youíll see

This old wandering boy from Tennessee

           

As long as the winds blow as long as the rivers flow...

           

Mama itís so good to be back home

And itís not right for you and papa to be alone

But listen was that the late evening train

Well I could have sworn I heard it call my name

 

As long as the winds blow as long as the rivers flow...
