The Wind Cries Mary
by Jimi Hendrix

After all jacks are in their boxes
And the clowns have all gone to bed
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
Footprints dressed in red

And the wind whispers Mary

A broom is drearily sweeping
Up the broken pieces of yesterday's life
Somewhere a queen is weeping
Somewhere a king has no wife

And the wind, it cries Mary

The traffic lights they turn a blue tomorrow
And shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sags downstream
'Cause the life that they lived is dead

And the wind screams Mary

Will the wind ever remember?
The names it has blown in the past
And with its crutch, its old age and its wisdom
It whispers "no, this will be the last"

And the wind cries Mary

Whos watching this in 2020?

Suonatore Jones

Me too.

Katherine Ace

Me too - I'm watching this. Over and over and over again. NOW (5/20/2020 and for the last two months, at least). Want to collect the best of the best of the past and the visionary mystics' products they left behind for us future humans. They often did it thru beauty. Hendrix had a very difficult life. He was part African and a good part Cherokee. Looking at his facial features and his music he was a lot Cherokee. The wind cries "mary" = many interpretations. Many slippages of the word 'mary'. One is, the loss of one individual is a loss forever. There has never been and never will be another YOU. Hendrix sings this in a way that everyone noticed and we do not forget.


I totally am ! . A Genius and way, way ahead of his time !

Marshall Benjamin



anyone loving this in 2019 ?

Katherine Ace

humans will be watching and listening to this for at least the next 1000 years. Probably long after our species extincts itself. This is a mystical visionary isolated active ingredient. This one song and the way he sings it. He was, and still is, a true blessing for us . thank you to the spirit who incarnated as Jimi Hendrix. We humans love you. We will not forget.
