Johnny Cash - Any Old Wind That Blows Lyrics




Lord, she's restless
Like cotton candy clouds that sail the day
Slow an' free
And she possesses
A mind that can't resign itself to stay
For long with me
Tho' I've tried and tried to keep her tied and satisfied
Until she really needs me
Yes I do
But when that certain look comes on her face
I can't replace it, and she leaves me

She's a butterfly in mid July
Who just can't wait to try her brand new wings
On brand new things
And she needs no rhyme or reason, when she goes
Her mind is on what lies beyond that wall of blue horizon
I suppose
And heaven knows
She'll go sailin' off on any old wind that blows
Yes she will, yes she will
She'll go sailin' off on any old wind that blows

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
Mmm, mmm, mmm
But I know the only reason
That she ever had for leavin', is she wants to

  1. Donna Lantier

    i think about my mom when i hear this song
    rest in peace mom love you and miss you every day

  2. Austin Dean

    This song doesn't relate to my mom's character in any way but we spent many Saturday nights listening to country gold from 106.7 in Atlanta and cash and pride were her jams

  3. Michel MEUNIER

    Hmmmm
    Lord, she's restless,
    Like cotton candy clouds that sail the day,
    Slow and free.
    And she possesses,
    A mind that can't resign itself to stay,
    For long with me
    Though I've tried and tried to keep her tied and satisfied,
    Until she really needs me,
    Yes I do,
    But when that certain look comes on her face,
    I can't replace it,
    And she leaves me.
    She's butterfly in mid July who just can't wait to try her brand new wings.
    On brand new things.
    And she needs no rhyme or reason when she goes.
    Her mind is on what lies beyond that wall of blue horizon, I suppose:
    And Heaven knows
    She'll go sailin' off on any old wind that blows.
    Yes, she will;
    Yes, she will.
    She'll go sailin' off on any old wind that blows.
    Hmm
    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.
    Hhmm.
    But I know the only reason,
    That she ever has for leavin',
    Is she wants to
    She's butterfly in mid July who just can't wait to try her brand new wings.
    On brand new things.
    And she needs no rhyme or reason when she goes.
    Her mind is on what lies beyond that wall of blue horizon, I suppose:
    And Heaven knows
    She'll go sailin' off on any old wind that blows.
    Hmmm, hmm hmm, Hmmm, hmm, hmm (x4...)

  14. IndianaJ

    This song always makes me think of my Dad. He left my Mom and I when I was seven for a much younger party girl. She ran him through the ringer, cheated on him, etc. Then she would disappear for years at a time for no reason and my Dad would be suicidal. He took her back every time though until we finally buried him. She didn't even come to his funeral. But he loved that woman.

    Tox

    He's in heaven now. Peace to you my candid friend.

    IndianaJ

    Thank you my friend. God bless.

  19. sallymaggiespotty

    What a great song from The Man In Black.Johnny was a tremendous talent and produced such wonderful music for so many years.He is sorely missed and may he and June RIP.

  20. Lucas Scott

    Love the song, and Johny cash. Waylon Jennings and Johny cash are my two favorite artists. They made such good music! The garbage they play today and call "country music" is a disgrace... I wish they would play more of the real McCoy.

    Ashley Dennie

    Lucas Scott exactly I'm 11 and Johnny cash is my favorite I also like Conway twitty
