....gawd I hate rules but this song is haunting is a Don Hunt song...

When the wind was green at the start of spring
When the wind was green like a living thing
It was on my lips and its kiss was fair,
You were there

When the wind was red like a summer wine
When the wind was red like your lips on mine
It caressed my face and it tossed my hair
You were there

Then came the fall and all of love came tumbling down
Like the leaves that lost to frost
And found they were lying, crying

In a proud wind--dying
But the winter's come and we both should know
That the wind is white
Like the swelling snow
And we'll never see all the wonderful things to be seen
When the wind is green

I have it on maybe a Keely Smith 78????
GG how is it played???...harp

...hmmm Rick- I have suspended chords on one of the harps I play fiddle tunes with and they do sound jazzy...I wonder if this song has suspended chords?...anyone know?

I know this is more than quite a few years late, but (now deceased) jazz singer Chris Connor recorded this on a double-album set "Jazz Date." Fifth cut. Awesome rendition. Atlantic label.
