hi There! I am a music therapist working in an intermediate care facility. One of the residents is asking me for an old british song "The wind that blew the Pump up" I don't know if this is the 'real' title or part of the chorus or what! If anyone knows that particular song or anything about it, I would appreciate words, Music and guitar chords if possible so i can sing it for her.

The only song about wind that I can think of is "The Great High Wind That Blew the Low Post Down," sometimes known as "The High Wind That Blew the Low Post Down."

According to the Folk Index, it has been recorded by the Beers Family, Booger Hole Revival, Guy Carawan, Bruce Hutton, Metamora, Eileen Monger, and Eric & Martha Nagler.

I don't have the lyrics but I think it's an American song. And it might have been a fiddle tune before someone put words to it.

This reminds me of the words in the Bidford-on-Avon Mummers Play. At the end Trottin Jack says:
In comes I, ole Trottin Jack,
With me wife an' family on me back.
Out of seven I've got eleven,
And all the rest 'ave gone to 'eaven.
The wind blowed the pump up
An' the cat ran out o the ash hole.
I too would be interested in this song and the others I mentioned in the thread: Mummers Songs

"A possum sat on a simmon tree, a lookin' cunnin' down on me ...!"
Alan

The wind blew the pump up
The fools cut the potatoes up
The monkey cut his tail off
And so we sharnt be long
Lalalalalalalala la lalalalala laa

My nan sang this to me xxx

I don't know that song but I remember there was a tune well known around fiddle and accordion clubs, The wind that shook the piggery.
