Johnny Cash - "Any Old Wind That Blows"


Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Dick Feller

[A] Lord, she's restless
Like [D] cotton candy clouds that sail the [A] day
Flowin' [D] free ... and she pos-[A] sesses
A [D] mind that can't resign itself to [A] stay ... for [D] long, with me
So I [E] tried and tried, to keep her tied and [D] satisfied
Until she really [A] needs me ... yes I [D] do
But [A] when that certain look comes on her [E] face
I can't re-[D] place it and she leaves [A] me.

I know she needs me
About as much as I need someone else
Which I don't ... and if need be
I swear someday I'll up and leave myself ... which I won't
Even If she loved another man, I'd understand it more than I do
Umh, umh, umh - but I know the only reason
That she ever had for leavin', is she wants to.

She's a [E] butterfly in mid July, who [D] just can't wait to try
Her brand new [A] wings, on brand new [D] things
And she [A] needs no rhyme or [D] reason, when she [A] goes
Her [E] mind is on what lies beyond that [D] wall of Blue horizon
I sup-[A] pose ... and heaven [D] knows
She'll go [A] sailin' off on [E] any old wind that [A] blows.

Yes she [D] will, yes she [A] will
She'll go sailin' off on [E] any old wind that [A] blows.
