Wind In The Willows

This song is by Blackmore's Night and appears on the album Under A Violet Moon (1999).

As I went a walking
One morning in spring
I met with some travelers
On an old country lane
One was an old man
The second a maid
The third was a young boy who smiled as he said:

"With the wind in the willows
The birds in the sky
There's a bright sun to warm us
Wherever we lie
We have bread and fishes
And a jug of red wine
To share on our journey
With all of mankind"

So I asked them to tell me their name and their race
So I could remember each smile on their face
"Our names, they mean nothing
They change throughout time
So come sit beside us and share in our wine"

"With the wind in the willows
The birds in the sky
There's a bright sun to warm us
Wherever we lie
We have bread and fishes
And a jug of red wine
To share on our journey
With all of mankind"

So I sat down beside them
With flowers all around
We et from a mantle
Spread out on the ground
They told me of prophets
And peoples and kings
And all of the one god
That knows everything
"We're traveling to Glaston
Over England's gren lanes
To hear of men's troubles
To hear of their pains
We travel the wide world
Over land and the sea
To tell all the people
How they can be free"

"With the wind in the willows
The birds in the sky
There's a bright sun to warm us
Wherever we lie
We have bread and fishes
And a jug of red wine
To share on our journey
With all of mankind"

So sadly I left them
In that old country lane
For I knew that I'd never see them again
One was an old man
The second a maid
The third was a young boy who smiled as he said:

"With the wind in the willows
The birds in the sky
There's a bright sun to warm us
Wherever we lie
We have bread and fishes
And a jug of red wine
To share on our journey
With all of mankind"

"With the wind in the willows
The birds in the sky
There's a bright sun to warm us
Wherever we lie
We have bread and fishes
And a jug of red wine
To share on our journey
With all of mankind"

All of mankind
