From the recording "Bluebirds Singing on the Buffalo Road"
Back Of The North Wind is from the book, "Autumn's On Its Way."
Feel it in your bones
Smell it in the air
Hear the wind people chatter at the door
A nudging in the soul
A tugging at the spirit
Remind you what you already know
Did you make it up?
Or, was it really there?
A shadow moving through the moonlit sage?
Now, there's lightning on the mesa
It's raining on the playa
They're telling you to go but, here you stay
It's time to go (echo) it's time to go
Why are you here? (Echo)Are you still here)
If you leave right now
You might catch up to them
Your heart took your dreams by the hand
and rode out
on the back of the North Wind.
