Blue Norther

BLUE NORTHER
Copyright © Terry Dyke

I sat up through the night as the norther blew in
Just thinkin’ of you and wishin’ again
Blue norther, blow — blow my baby to me
She’s the one that I want, she’s the one that I long for
To stay here with me.

Some say it would be much better by far
To be someplace else than besides where they are.
Blue norther, blow — blow you wild and free
There’s a voice I can hear, there’s a face I can see
That will not let me be.

I can’t help but sigh when
The winds begin cryin’ your name
They wail in the chimney, but
Oh, how they brighten the flame!

Let the four winds blow, and tonight it makes five
Like the last best hope that would never arrive
Blue norther, blow — blow away these fears
Just the glimpse of a world, just a moment so brief
That must last all these years.

I sat up through the night as the norther blew in
Everything still the same, all except where you’d been
Blue norther, blow — blow my baby back here
If you can’t manage that, if it’s too much to ask for
Don’t come back next year.
