Winds gotta blow

Bob Porter (capo 1st fret)

 

Em                                                           D

Breaks way from harbor two in the morn

Em                                           D

Pickin up speed as she goes

Em                                                           D

And the sound of the engines     beginning to crack

Em                                           D

As over the ocean she flows

Em                                           D                             Em                                           D

Long liner lad perched at the helm takin her into the night

Em                                                                           D

There’s a cool breeze a pickin up from the northwest

Em                                                           D

You can say you no ????? delight

 

G                             C             G                                             D                             G

Oh oh the winds gotta blow clensin your souls with her charms

G                             C             G                                             D                             G

Oh oh the winds gotta blow she’s craddlin into your arms

 

 

Three hours later and no land in sight

You stare into the darkness with all of your might

And a glimmer of dawn trickles through the dark clouds

Theres wind up ahead someone hollers out loud

Pull up to our gear and back on the speed

Then haul through the morning and into the eve

Oh we’ve got the days catch and reset the gear

And he sits down and he sits down and ?????? with the wind in her ears

 

Oh oh the winds gotta blow clensin your souls with her charms

Oh oh the winds gotta blow she’s cradled into your arms

 

Years they have passed with a change in the stars

Some other town those long liner log

He’s perched in the back of a boat in a pond

And reflect on the ocean in the wee early morn

Mist on the water with the sun breakin through

Oh so rare do ya see that          but some say they do

Then he lifts his head slowly                  says with a grin

A breeze is a breeze it’s no match for the wind

 

Oh oh the winds gotta blow clensin your soul with her charms

Oh oh the winds gotta blow she’s cradled you into her

Oh oh the winds gotta blow clensin your souls with her charms

Oh oh the winds gotta blow she’s craddlin you into her

Oh oh the winds gotta blow
