Whistle Down the Wind Lyrics

Joan Baez
I grew up here all of my life
But I dreamed someday I'd go
Where the blue-eyed girls
And the red guitars
And the naked rivers flow

I'm not all I thought I'd be
I've always stayed around
I've been as far as Mercy and Grand
Frozen to the ground

I can't stay here
And I'm scared to leave
So kiss me once and then
I'll go to hell
I might as well be
Whistlin' down the wind

The bus is at the corner
The clock on the wall
Broken down windmill
There ain't no wind at all

And I yelled and I cursed
If I stay here I'll rust
I'm stuck like a shipwreck
Out here in the dust

The sky is red
And the world is on fire
And the corn is taller than me
And the dog is tied to a wagon of rain
And the road is wet as the sea

Sometimes the music from a dance
Will carry across the plains
The places that I'm dreaming of
Dream only of your face

There are places where they never sleep
And the circus never ends

So I will take the Marleybone coach
And be whistlin' down the wind
So I will take the Marleybone coach
And be whistlin' down the wind´╗┐
