TUNE FOR NOVEMBER
(Gordon Bok)

When the wind backs around to the North in November
Wild geese go a ganging out to sea
There's snow on the wind
And it's ever been the same
That north wind don't even know my name (2x)

Long time ago, I had a pretty little girl
She had pretty ways and silver in her tongue
But that winter wind come prowling 'round
That pretty girl did go
She found a man whose house was snug and warm
A man whose house was warm in the wind and snow

When the wind backs around to the North in November
Wild geese go a ganging out to sea
There's snow on the wind
And it's ever been the same
That north wind don't even know my name (2x)

Now the days cone 'round, I've got another kind of woman
She's got no teasing eyes and her tongue is still
And she likes the snowflakes falling
She doesn't mind the rain
She knows what's in her heart like she knows her name (2x)

I'll build her a house of the winds of November
Shingled with the sun along the shore
With the wind for her blanket
The rain will be her door
The pine for her pillow and her floor (2x)
