Whistle Down the Wind Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I grew up here all of my life
But I dreamed someday I'd go
Where the blue eyed girls and red guitars
And the naked rivers flow
Verse 2
I'm not all I thought I'd be
I've always stayed around
And I've been as far as Mercy and Grand
Frozen to the ground
Verse 3
I can't stay here and I'm scared to leave
So kiss me once and then
I'll go to hell
I might as well
Be whistlin' down the wind
Verse 4
The buses at the corner
The clock on the wall
Broken down windmill
There's ain't wind at all
Verse 5
And I've yelled and I' cursed
If I stay here I'll rust
I'm stuck like a shipwreck
Out here in the dust
Verse 6
The sky is red, and the world is on fire
And the corn is taller than me
And the dog is tied to a wagon of rain
And the road as wet as the sea
Verse 7
Sometimes the music from a dance
Will carry across the plains
The places I've been dreaming of
Dream only of your face
Verse 8
There are places where they never sleep
And the circus never ends
So I will take the Marley Bone Coach
And be whistlin' down the wind
So I will take the Marley Bone Coach
And be whistlin' down the wind
