The Wayward Wind
Gogi Grant Lyrics


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 wanderin' 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

65 years later this song is still going strong! One of the best songs I have ever heard. Gogi did a masterpiece with this song.

Well it is now Jan 12, 2020 and this great song is still great to hear. One of those songs I shall like as long as I live. It has something no other song has which is hard to describe.

Jim Lodwick

Listening Jan 2022 some songs just get better and better with time.

You could have not said that better, but I feel it is a spiritual truth happening in this song.
