Big Wind
recorded by Porter Wagoner
written by
Wayne P. Walker, Alex Zanetis, George McCormick

From daylight till dusk we've been a working in the dust
G7 C
Picking cotton working side by side

Well I can't forget yes I remember yet
G7 C
The way my daddy looked at me and cried

Big wind's a coming listen to the humming
G7 C
Hurry up son be quick don't stall

You know we can't be slow take the kids and get below
G7 C
If we don't hurry it'll surely get us all

Well I ran across the field so scared my lips was sealed
G7 C
To warn my mom the storm is on its way

Well I knew I'd won my race when I saw my mammy's face
G7 C
And the way she looked at me and said

Repeat #2

Oh but dad was on the cellar and by now the sky was yellow
G7 C
The wind was a blowing trees were falling

And outside I heard him crying and as he lay there dying
G7 C
It seemed I could still hear him calling

Repeat #2
