Story

This one is a prayer, sent from the road. Sent back home and sometimes it feels just back in time.

It's also a promise.

The lovely Amanda Shires graced this track with her voice and Fiddle

Lyrics

Gypsy Child | BLOW BLUE WIND BLOW

Blow, Blue wind Blow
Across the hills and down below
Sweeping down across this plain
Blow this dust away and bring us rain

Go tell my mother I’m on the road
Tell her now I can’t be bought or sold
I make my way amongst the crowd
Learnt my lesson, I’ll make her proud

Go tell my father that I grew strong
Never meant to do any wrong
I was young and thought I was strong
How I missed his smile when I left home

Go tell my brother I miss him so
Watch his steps as he starts to go
Go tell my sister to be strong
She’s round the corner from reaching her home

Go tell my friends not to worry for me
I never left them they travelled with me
I carried their names, the stories they told
They kept me warm when the nights were cold

Go tell my love I forgot her none
I searched her smile in every new born sun
Heard her voice whispering in every dream
We’ll meet again when the leaves are green

Blow, Blue wind Blow
Across the hills and down below
Sweeping down across this plain
Blow away this dust and bring us rain
