Eddie Cochran – The Wayward Wind lyrics

Oh, 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

In a lonely shack by a railroad track
I spent my younger days
And I guess the sound of the outward-bound
Made me a slave to my wandering ways

Oh, I met a girl in a border town
I vowed we'd never part
Though I tried my best to settle down
She's now alone with a broken heart
