The Wayward Wind

A great wind is blowing, and that gives you
either imagination or a headache.”

- Catherine II, Queen of Russia
(21 Apr 1729 - 06 Nov 1796)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    I remember sitting by our Magnavox radio and singing along with Gogi to this when I was a little girl. Was I really only nine years old??

BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISEA1IK7AEE - The Wayward Wind - Gogi Grant, 1956


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wayward_Wind:

"The Wayward Wind" is a country song written by Stan Lebowsky and Herb Newman.

In 1956 versions were recorded by Gogi Grant, Tex Ritter, and Jimmy Young, of which Grant's was the biggest seller in the United States and Ritter's in the United Kingdom. The song reached #1 on the Cash Box chart, which combined all recorded versions, but must have got most of that popularity from the Gogi Grant version, which reached #1 on the Billboard chart on its own. The song is one of only two songs that were major hits for Grant, the other being "Suddenly There's a Valley".

In 1961 Gogi Grant's recording was reissued and reached Billboard #50 and Cash Box #78. That same year, Patsy Cline made a recording, which did not chart.

In 1963 a new recording was made by Frank Ifield, which reached #1 on the UK charts.

The song made the Billboard country chart in the 1980s in a version by Sylvia, with accompaniment by James Galway.

The Wayward Wind

Written by Stanley Lebowsky (26 Nov 1926 – 19 Oct 1986) and Herb Newman

Recorded by Gogi Grant (born Myrtle Audrey Arinsberg, 20 Sept 1924), 1956


The wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

In a lonely shack by a railroad track
He spent his younger days
And I guess the sound of the outward-bound
Made him a slave to his wand'rin ways

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

Oh, I met him there in a border town
He vowed we'd never part
Though he tried his best to settle down
I'm now alone with a broken heart

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

The next of kin to the wayward wind
