Winds Of Yesterday ~ A Three Chord Song


Winds Of Yesterday
Recorded by Boxcar Willie


D                  G            D
Sometimes at night when I'm all alone
                           A7
The sounds of the day fade away
D                G       D
Alone in my room with my memories
             G     D   A7      D
The winds of yesterday blow on me

       G                    D
I hear country music on the radio
                                A7
The way that it was a long time ago
        D                            G                    D
And the sound of momma singing comes drifting through the trees
                  G     D   A7      D
When the winds of yesterday blow on me

                            G                D
I see a moon so bright over cotton fields of white
                                    A7
The fragrance of magnolias ride the breeze
         D                              G                  D
And that little two room school where I learned the Golden Rule
                  G     D   A7      D
When the winds of yesterday blow on me

      G                            D
I see children at the old swimming hole
                                          A7
And fishing on the river with an old cane pole
     D                      G          D
Each memory is so dear each face is so clear
                  G     D   A7      D
When the winds of yesterday blow on me

      G                   D
I can hear the choir sing how their voices ring
                             A7
I remember the words to each song
D                            G                          D
Oh and that old preacher man once more sets my heart at ease
                  G     D   A7      D
When the winds of yesterday blow on me
                  G     D   A7      D
When the winds of yesterday blow on me 


I had never heard this song until a week ago
 when a friend of mine played it at a jam session.  
I just loved it  . . . 
and it is only three simple chords.  
You can find Boxcar Willie singing it on You Tube.  
I enjoy songs that tell a story.  
I hope you like it and add it to your songbook. 
 Keep strumming and singing,  
Connie :)
