The Wind Blows High
Jump Rope Song

The wind, the wind, the wind blows high
Blowing (a name) through the sky
She is handsome, she is pretty
She's the queen of the highland city
She goes courting 1-2-3,
Won't you tell us who is she?

We have it listed in our Digital Tradition Folk Song Database as The Wind, The Wind (6 versions)

I did not find it in the Jumprope Hypertext Archive (also here at Mudcat).

Can anybody contribute other versions? 6 is pretty good though, hey?

And just because I like it, here's Robert Hunter singing his The Wind Blows High, an entirely different song. Lyrics at Grateful Dead Lyric and Song Finder...
