​Northwinds

This song is by David Coverdale and appears on the album Northwinds (1978).

Taking it easy, taking it slow
Riding home to lay my body down
Thought about it long enough to let it slip away, yeah
But I feel like a stranger here today

Lost in who across the water
Took me far away from home
It seems it ain't enough to get down on your knees and pray, yeah
I've been waiting for the sun to shine
Though the rain took my spirit away

I'll take the sun before the rain any day, oh lord
Call on the northwinds when any clouds gets in my way
Nothing ever changes, the song remains the same
Feel I got a one way ticket, oh I'm sitting, sitting on an empty train

It's been a such a long time, on a black and ribbon road
Taking it easy, living from day to day
Sometimes it ain't so good when you find it so high
Riding on the northwind you'll never get the feeling to try

I'll take the sun before the rain any day, oh lord
Call on the northwinds when any clouds gets in my way
Nothing ever changes, the song remains the same
Feel I got a one way ticket, oh I'm sitting, sitting on an empty train

Northwinds make it oh so easy
Make me live my life too slow
It seems it ain't enough to get down on your knees and pray
I've been waiting for the sun to shine
Though the rain took my spirit away

I'll take the sun before the rain any day, oh lord
Call on the northwinds when any clouds gets in my way
Nothing ever changes, the song remains the same
Feel I got a one way ticket, oh I'm sitting, sitting on an empty train

So the tell how long has the train been gone?
So the tell how long has the train been gone?
So the tell how long has the train been gone?
So the tell how long has the train been gone?
So the tell how long has the train been gone?

I even missed an empty train
