lyrics

Cold Wind (Nate’s Song)


There’s a cold wind blowin from the East
And it blew right through my town
And it blew the worst news
That I have ever found

My friend of twenty-nine years
last night he was shot down
In the hot, hot desert sand he
Laid cold dead on the ground

And he left behind a young and beautiful wife
Who saw walk across her lawn
Two tall men in uniform
Come to say her husband’s gone

And he left behind a grieving mom and father
And a thoughtful handsome brother
And a darlin baby boy who
Will be raised by his mother

You may ask why we even fight at all
Kill our boys and don’t look back
Some say the answer’s deep in the earth
Some say it’s color’s black

Some say we fight, yeah to bring democracy
Spread peace throughout the land
But bringin peace with guns is something
I will never understand

There’s a cold wind blowin from the East
And it blew right through my town
And it blew the worst news
That I have ever found
