Windfall
by Son Volt

Now and then it keeps you running
It never seems to die
The trail's spent with fear
Not enough living on the outside
Never seem to get far enough
Staying in between the lines
Hold on to what you can
Waiting for the end
Not knowing when

May the wind take your troubles away
May the wind take your troubles away
Both feet on the floor, two hands on the wheel
May the wind take your troubles away

Trying to make it far enough, to the next time zone
Few and far between past the midnight hour
You never feel alone, you're really not alone

Switching it over to AM
Searching for a truer sound
Can't recall the call letters
Steel guitar and settle down

Catching an all-night station somewhere in Louisiana
It sounds like 1963, but for now it sounds like heaven
May the wind take your troubles away
May the wind take your troubles away
Both feet on the floor, two hands on the wheel
May the wind take your troubles away

May the wind take your troubles away
May the wind take your troubles away

If I were a "country star" working today, and I saw this, I would be embarrassed to be alive.

Philip Catley

It is a brilliant song on a brilliant album. Feels like authentic dirt country rather than the glitzy big hat rodeo stuff of mainstream country.

Steve Towers

Well said.

HAG W

Amen brother.....

"Sounds like 1963, but for now it sounds like Heaven". One of the greatest lines in pop/rock history.

Barnaby Jones

"A dieing man in a living room" comes to mind

Paul Boudreau

BassPlayerSusan absolutely. The whole last verse is the prose of a genius songwriter.

Grant Hopkins

Gram Parsons would have loved this song

Tyler Stanley

True

John Waling

OMG you are right!! Was just listening to GP with Emmy Lou Harris on YouTube. I wish he would have lived longer to reap the benefits of his talent and musical influences.
