Thereís a stray wind blowing somewhere
From a land of far away
And I know heíll pass you someday,
Steal a kiss and be on his way.
Then heíll hurry off to find me
And heíll linger by my door
And, perchance, if fancy takes him,
Leave your kiss and be gone once more.
Itís a game heís been playing for ever so long.
Only he it would be who dares it
And heíll play it from now till eternity
Till with one and with all he shares it.
Heíll be coming back some blue day
And, if youíre still fancy free,
Just be ready when he passes.
Follow him, follow him to me
Sheet music: Bob Nolan Music Inc (May 28, 1954)
with the Bob Ross Music identification number of "BN 109". This is one of Bob
Nolan's post-Sons of the Pioneers' compositions with more emphasis on love and
nature. Note that Bob always referred to the elements (land, sea, sky, moon,
etc) as "he" because felt that God and Nature were one. Where it is common to
speak of "Mother" Nature, Bob considered Nature to be masculine, as is God.
