Kingston Trio – South Wind lyrics

Travis Edmonson

Well, I know I don't have to be told
That the North wind is chilly and cold.
Well, I know.
Far from the South wind I ran.
Now, I'm a lost and lonely man.
Well, I know.

Had a little girl but she left me. (Repeat twice)
Well, I know.

She took the sun and left me the rain
And left me the sorrow and all of the pain.
Well, I know.
She took my love and left me torn.
Now, I'm lonely and forlorn.
Well, I know.

All of my love done left me. (Repeat twice)
Well, I know.

She told me someday she'd return
If the sun should freeze or the Earth should burn.
Well, I know.
But now she's gone and in the sky
The wind alone can hear me cry.
Well, I know.

Had a little girl but she left me. (Repeat twice)
Well, I know.
