the wayward wind lyrics – waterboys

(neil young)

in a lonesome shack by the railroad track
i spent my younger days
and i guess the sound of the outward bound
made me a slave
to my wandering queen

and the wayward wind
is a restless wind
a restless wind
that yearns to wander
and i was born
next of kin
the next of kin
to the wayward wind

i met her down in a border town
we swore we’d never part
though i tried my best to settle down
now she’s all alone
with a broken heart

and the wayward wind
is a restless wind
a restless wind
that yearns to wander
and i was born
the next of kin
the next of kin
to the wayward wind

and the wayward wind
is a restless wind
a restless wind
that yearns to wander
and i was born
the next of kin
the next of kin
to the wayward wind

the next of kin
to the wayward, wayward wind
