GUEST,robomatic Lyr Req: The Wind (Warren Zevon) (11) Lyr/Chords Add: THE WIND (Warren Zevon) 06 May 05

What a great writer, voice, and performer. I saw him perform solo in Boston in the 80s, maybe even acoustic, my memory is dim. But he was one of the greats, he made twisted sound good, and he could do a good 'angry' song when he wanted.

Apparently Warren Zevon did not personally record this song:

The Wind

Intro) Am G C / Dm C G Am

Verse 1

[Am]The wind is laughing [G] through the [C] trees...
[Am] Laughing with me,[G] Not at [Am] me [ Dm C G Am]
[Dm]Round here when the [C] wind blows [Bb] hard.....
[Am] You start forgetting [G] who you [Am] are... (Dm C G Am]

Note: All 5 verses are the same chords)

Verse 2

Round here when it rains it pours
Even the bobolink goes indoors
You'll be forgotten but you wont forget....
Come along with me, you'll just get wet

Verse 3

Arizona's so hot and dry....
Dreamt up rivers and mountains rise...
The old cars left to rest and rust....
Come along with me,says the dust

Verse 4

Out here on a stormy night
Amidst the clouds and crackling light
Times a foe and times a friend
Come along with me, says the wind

Verse 5

Arizona's filled with ghosts
San Joaquin, my gracious host
Through the rain the wind and dust
To the arms of Je-Sus
