“Wanderin’ Song” by Lou Shields

Red bird sing, diddy wah do
Clouds blew away when the sky turned blue
Church bell ring, willows sway
Wind is a blowin’ my soul today


Old Man Winter’s comin’ on
That old wind is a blowin’ strong
Been feelin’ mighty restless, all winter long
I’m on my back porch, playin’ my wanderin’ song

Like one little light in the dark dark sky
Wind is a blowin’ that fire fly
Preacher man say, the lights on you
Climb that mountain, that’s just what I’ll do

Singin’ all night by the fire light
Floorboards movin’ to the old blue night
Smoke in the air, biscuits are done
Butter and honey up come that sun

Cold wind blow, bring winter snow
Kettle on the fire, coffee perkin’ slow
Spring time come when the wind don’t blow
Long time comin’ better shut your door


from Bad Ax County, released February 1, 2017
