Blow Wind Blow
Tom Waits Lyrics


Blow wind blow, wherever you may go
Put on your overcoat, take me away
You gotta take me on into the night
Take me on into the night
Blow me away, blow me away

Mary's on the black top
There's a husband in the dog house
In the middle of a shakedown
I got quiet as a churchmouse
Put my Raleighs on the dashboard
Sugar daddy caught a polo-car
There's no solitary tap dance way down here

Blow wind blow, wherever you may go
Put on your overcoat, take me into the night
Take me into the night, blow me away

I ride upon a field mouse
I was dancin' in the slaughterhouse
And it was swing along the beltway
You skid along there all day
'Cause I went a little crazy
And I sat upon a high chair
And I'm smokin like a diesel way out here

And if you blow wind blow, wherever you may go
Put on your overcoat, take me away
You gotta to take me on into the night
Well, you take me on into the night
Blow me away
Blow me away
You gotta blow mw away, blow me away, yeah

Tom Waits is a genious. he's music and poetry

Rob Arentsen

I just picture Tom Waits playing Harry Haller (Steppenwolf), in a way this atmosphere is very german, absurdist. Great scenery for the Palace of Mirrors.

Keith Tucker

A perfect song, he is the definition of genius

lelabotoxique

I love that MTV labeled the song as "Chi Chi Club". Sigh. Great job.

Joshua Pearman

There are some parts where the singing is actually pretty amazing. Like around 2 minutes in, the way he carries out the word "away" is incredible.

Laura H R Durrant

I never said you were closed-minded for not knowing him,but for not giving him a chance

HannibalOrJustRex

I'm younger than anybody else on Earth and even I can recognize that musical taste is not a competition in age

Timothy Amerman

Hahah I love how he was keeping a fifth inside the wooden leg. That is a very Tom Waits thing to do.

Jason Phillips

That’s a pint bro
