Springwind

This song is by Shawn Phillips and appears on the album Collaboration (1971).

Phillips

Now the wind of change is blowing through the towers
And the hard rain's pouring down
And the face of man has turned into a glower,
And he's forced to scheme to keep his limited powers
And the not-so-strong are merely made to cower
But there's a springwind, springwind blowing through the bamboo leaves
Springwind, springwind blowing through the bamboo leaves
Yet the spirit of man growing ever higher every time he plants a field
To grow and to sow, again he's repeating, recreating what he feels
The lives of a farmer, the lives of a doctor should be running parallel
Shrewd politicians meet wealthy morticians and do they really burn in hell?
Come a springwind, springwind blowing through the bamboo leaves
Springwind, springwind blowing through the bamboo leaves

Take a world and then you fill it full of peoples
And the force of life is bound to go shatteringly forward
Make a law for man, it doesn't work for mayhem
But the task at hand is so unbearably rewarding
And as we see the change is not so crawling
'Cause there's a springwind, springwind blowing through the bamboo leaves
Springwind, springwind blowing through the bamboo leaves
