Spring Wind

Greg Brown

I lived awhile without you
Darn near half my life
I no longer see our unborn children
Born to you my unwed wife
But yesterday I had a vision
Beneath the tree where we once talked
Of an old couple burning
Their love letters so their children
Won't be shocked

Love calls like the wild birds
It's another day
A Spring wind blew my list of
Things to do away

My friends are gettin older
So I guess I must be too
Without their loving kindness
I don't know what I'd do
Oh the wine bottle's half empty
The money's all spent
And we're a cross between our parents
And hippies in a tent

Love calls like the wild birds
It's another day
A Spring wind blew my list of
Things to do away

In a mucked up lovely river
I cast my little fly
I look at that river and smell it
And it makes me wanna cry
Oh to clean our dirty planet
Now there's a noble wish
And I'm puttin my shoulder to the wheel
'Cause I wanna catch some fish

Love calls like the wild birds
It's another day
A Spring wind blew my list of
Things to do away

Children go to sleep now
You know it's gettin' late
I know you don't like to miss nothin'
And school ain't that great
Oh, I'll dance with you when you're happy
And hold you when you're sad
And hope you know how glad I am
Just to be you're Dad

Love calls like the wild birds
It's another day
A Spring wind blew my list of
Things to do away

Darlin' it's been a hard go
But I think we'll be okay
I know I say that all the time
Like everything else I say
Oh, I've been gone so often
But every time I miss you
And I don't really know nothin'
Except I like to kiss you

Love calls like the wild birds
It's another day
A Spring wind blew my list of
Things to do away
