"Black Wind Blowing" as written by and Mason Jennings....
When I got home there was blood on the door.
I saw you lying on the kitchen floor.
I ran down the hallway when i saw what he did
And i found our little bitty baby lying dead in her crib.

There's a black wind blowing.
Oh, there's a black wind blowing.
There's a black wind blowing outside our gates
Trying to blow this place into outer space.
There's a black wind blowing.

I didn't bother picking up the phone.
I'm gonna get there first, I want you all alone.
There's gonna be blood on the wall at highway south.
Your scripture won't save you when my gun's in your mouth.


I was eighteen when I first came here
Me and my brother tried to disappear.
He chose the prophet, baby, I chose you.
From that day i feared what he could do.


I took the corner then I gunned it hard.
I drove my truck into your front yard.
You came out running but I was to fast.
I took out your legs and dropped you in the grass.

There were people outside, I heard somebody scream.
My whole life became a movie screen.
I remembered us jumping on our mama's bed.
She was yelling be careful or you'll bump your head.

I put my gun up under your chin.
My hand was shaking so I dug it in.
You started laughing, said I understand.
You wish you couldn't but I know you can, you can.

    General CommentThis song made me think of the Lafferty brothers in Utah. If that's the case, seems like the end of the song could be a fictional reaction based on how Mason might have felt.
