​The Wind Blows Cold

This song is by Carol Montag and appears on the album Marigolds (2000).

Your mother kept a candy dish
On the dining room buffet
Bright colored candy
Cellophane wrapped
And it's probably there to this day

You lived across the street from me
Raised on the rosary
And I on a Protestant prayer
Nothing ever frightened you
The sticks or the stone they threw
You just didn't seem to care

Now the winds blow cold
The winds blow cold
Dandelion chains
Listening to the rain
With a birds eye view from the tree
You always looked out for me
Now the winds blow cold
The winds blow cold

We got in such trouble
When we picked the flowers
From Mrs. McGavren's yard
Well, I'm gonna run away
You'll never see me again
But I never got too far

When we were autumns child
You stayed with us a while
Your mother went away
No one would say just why
Look us right in the eye and say,
"'Cause she cries and cries all day."

Now the winds blow cold
The winds blow cold
Dandelion chains
Listening to the rain
With a birds eye view from the tree
You always looked out for me
Now the winds blow cold
The winds blow cold

Embrace the branches of the willow tree
Swing with her to and fro
Till your arms hurt because of the grip
Fall to the ground when you let go
It was red light, green light on the grass
London bridge fallen down
Duck, duck goose and you moved away
The thimble was never found

Now the winds blow cold
The winds blow cold
Dandelion chains
Listening to the rain
With a birds eye view from the tree
You always looked out for me
Now the winds blow cold
The winds blow cold
