The Summer Wind

Technically the autumnal equinox was two days ago.  I'm still hoping to bleed a few more days out of summer, so I'll pretend it's not fall just yet.

Wish I'd kept more of my dad's records.  They're most likely sitting in a compost heap inside my brother's house.


Songwriters: MERCER, JOHNNY/MAYER, HENRY/BRADTKE, HANS
The summer wind, came blowin in - from across the sea
It lingered there, so warm and fair - to walk with me
All summer long, we sang a song - and strolled on golden sand
Two sweethearts, and the summer wind

Like painted kites, those days and nights - went flyin by
The world was new, beneath a blue - umbrella sky
Then softer than, a piper man - one day it called to you
And I lost you, to the summer wind

The autumn wind, and the winter wind - have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days - go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies - through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind.
