Winds of Morning

Irish Song Lyrics - Winds of MorningAuthor: words: Tommy Makem
Copyright: music, Traditional air

I've walked the hills when rain was falling Rested by a wide oak tree Heard a lark sing high at evening Caught a moonbeam on the sea CHORUS Softly blow ye winds of morning Sing ye winds your mournful sound Blow ye from the earth's four corners Guide this traveller where he's bound I've helped a ploughman tend his horses Heard a rippling river sing Talked to stars when night was falling Seen a primrose welcome spring Chorus By foreign shores, my feet have wandered Heard a stranger call me friend Every time my mind was troubled Found a smile around the bend Chorus There's a ship stands in the harbour All prepared to cross the foam Far off hills were fair and friendly Still there's fairer hills at home
