"(Tumble) In the Wind" as written by and Kerry A Livgren Kerry Livgren....
I seem to tumble in the wind
I wait for it to begin
When I look at you
I ain't too proud to say
I once loved a girl this way

I bring trouble on my lonesome self
I see danger in each offered help
Times are hard
The money just won't come through
I would be alone if not for you

They brought me in on a flatcar
Down from old Hong Kong
Tried to tell me what I was doing
Was absolutely wrong
Tried to make me over
Into a man of steel
But I knew I would have to kneel

From the plains of Alberta
With its wheat so wild and strong
I rolled over the Northlands
Till I came to Saskatchewan
From a hardback in my satchel
I read the words quite clear
Hurry home to your loved ones now
Wintertime is near

I seem to tumble in the wind
I wait for it to begin
When I look at you
I ain't too proud to say
I once loved a girl this way

    General CommentCorrect lyrics for the Jackson C. Frank song, NOT the Kerry Livgren song:

    I seem to tumble in the wind
    I wait for it to begin
    When I look at you
    I ain't too proud to say
    I once loved a girl this way

    I bring trouble on my lonesome self
    I see danger in each offered help
    Times are hard
    The money just won't come through
    I would be alone if not for you

    They brought me in on a flatcar
    Down from old Hong Kong
    Tried to tell me what I was doing
    Was absolutely wrong
    Tried to make me over
    Into a man of steel
    But I knew I would have to kneel

    From the plains of Alberta
    With its wheat so wild and strong
    I rolled over the Northlands
    Till I came to Saskatchewan
    From a hardback in my satchel
    I read the words quite clear
    Hurry home to your loved ones now
    Wintertime is near

    I seem to tumble in the wind
    I wait for it to begin
    When I look at you
    I ain't too proud to say
    I once loved a girl this way
