A Mighty Wind

This song is by The Folksmen, Mitch & Mickey and The New Main Street Singers and appears on the movie soundtrack A Mighty Wind: The Album (2003).

As I travel down the backroads
Of this home I love so much
Every carpenter and cowboy
Every lame man on a crutch
They're all talkin' 'bout a feeling
'Bout a taste that's in the air
They're all talkin' 'bout this mighty wind
That's blowin' everywhere

Oh, a mighty wind's a-blowin'
It's kickin' up the sand
It's blowin' out a message
To every woman, child, and man
Yes, a mighty wind's a-blowin'
'Cross the land and 'cross the sea
It's blowin' peace and freedom
It's blowin' equality

From a lighthouse in Bar Harbor
To a bridge called Golden Gate
From a trawler down in Shreveport
To the shore of one Great Lake
There's a star on the horizon
And it's burning like a flare
It's lighting up this mighty wind
That's blowin' everywhere

Oh, a mighty wind's a-blowin'
It's kickin' up the sand
It's blowin' out a message
To every woman, child, and man
Yes, a mighty wind's a-blowin'
'Cross the land and 'cross the sea
It's blowin' peace and freedom
It's blowin' equality

When the blind man sees the picture
When the deaf man hears the word
When the fisherman stops fishin'
When the hunter spares the herd
We'll still hear the wondrous story
Of a world where people care
The story of this mighty wind
That's blowin' everywhere

Oh, a mighty wind's a-blowin'
It's kickin' up the sand
It's blowin' out a message
To every woman, child, and man
Yes, a mighty wind's a-blowin'
'Cross the land and 'cross the sea
It's blowin' peace and freedom
It's blowin' equality

Yes, it's blowin' peace and freedom
It's blowin' you and me
