A Mighty Wind song by Mitch and Mickey


As I travel on the backroads,
Of this home I love so much,
Every carpenter and cowboy,
They’re all talking ’bout this feeling,
About a taste that’s in the air,
We’re all talking ’bout this mighty wind,
That’s blowin’ everywhere!

Oh a mighty wind’s a-blowin’,
It’s kickin’ up the sand.
It’s blowin’ out a message to every woman child and man.
Yes, a mighty wind’s a-blowin’,
‘Cross the the land and ‘cross the sea,
It’s blowin’ peace and freedom,
It’s blowin’ equality.

From a lighthouse in Bar Harbour,
To a bridge called Golden Gate.
From a troller down in Shreveport,
To the shore of one Great Lake.
There’s a star on the horizon,
And it’s burnin’ like a flare.
It’s lighting up this mighty wind,
that’s blowing everywhere!

Oh a mighty wind’s a-blowin’,
It’s kickin’ up the sand.
It’s blowin’ out a message to every woman child and man.
Yes, a mighty wind’s a-blowin’,
‘Cross the the land and ‘cross the sea,
It’s blowin’ peace and freedom,
It’s blowin’ equality.

When the blind man sees the picture,
When the deaf man hears the word.
When the fisherman stops fishing,
When the hunter spares the bird.
We’ll still hear the wonderous story,
Of a world where people care.
The story of this mighty wind,
That’s blowin’ everywhere!

Oh a mighty wind’s a-blowin’,
It’s kickin’ up the sand.
It’s blowin’ out a message to every woman child and man.
Yes, a mighty wind’s a-blowin’,
‘Cross the the land and ‘cross the sea,
It’s blowin’ peace and freedom,
It’s blowin’ equality.
Yes, it’s blowin’ peace and freedom,
It’s blowin’ you and me!
