The Wind Cries Mary
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics

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

Misleading. This is NOT the studio version of the song from the "Are You Experienced" album. But a live version that the JHE performed on a London TV show in 1967.

Douglas Carlson

The best version of this song was taken off the Internet 5-10 years ago ...
His live performance at the Monterrey Pop Festival, 1967 - he was wearing that peach-colored outfit ... I believe the legend was born with that song, at that moment.
