"Any Old Wind That Blows" as written by and D. Feller....
Hmmmm

Lord, she's restless,
Like cotton candy clouds that sail the day,
Slow and free.
And she possesses,

A mind that can't resign itself to stay,
For long with me
Though I've tried and tried to keep her tied and satisfied,
Until she really needs me,

Yes I do,
But when that certain look comes on her face,
I can't replace it,
And she leaves me.

She's butterfly in mid July who just can't wait to try her brand new wings.
On brand new things.
And she needs no rhyme or reason when she goes.
Her mind is on what lies beyond that wall of blue horizon, I suppose:

And Heaven knows
She'll go sailin' off on any old wind that blows.
Yes, she will;
Yes, she will.
She'll go sailin' off on any old wind that blows.

[Repeat: x2]
Hmm

I know she needs me,
About as much as I need someone else,
Which I don't.
And if need be,

I swear someday I'll up and leave myself,
Which I won't.
Even if she loved another man,
I'd understand it more than I do.

Hhmm.
But I know the only reason,
That she ever has for leavin',
Is she wants to

She's butterfly in mid July who just can't wait to try her brand new wings.
On brand new things.
And she needs no rhyme or reason when she goes.
Her mind is on what lies beyond that wall of blue horizon, I suppose:

And Heaven knows
She'll go sailin' off on any old wind that blows.
Hmmm, hmm hmm, Hmmm, hmm, hmm (x4...)

    General CommentJohnny Cash - simple with his words, and still drives an incredible message along with them.

    The song is about the thoughts of the guy who has to let himself let the girl go. Fully admits to his care for her, fully admits that she might care for him too - but also fully admits that he see's that she's the one who's gotta take off....whether she knows it or not, whether she see's what she's got with him or not, whether he see's it fully or not, no matter what...

    reminds me of the couple that is together, and the girlfriend is looking out the window and looking into the maybe's of tomorrow; still while with him, and while he's with her...

    so what does it mean to me? it reminds me of maria; who broke my heart for a bolt of southern lightening guy, and i understand her because i actually do love and care for her... no matter what wind carries her or randomly puffs her way (and god i miss her even though she might not understand it yet....)
