lyrics

There’s a dark shadow that’s been a-followin’ me
I’ve tried to nail that shadow down
I’ve tried to whitewash the ground where it joins to my feet
But it keeps trailin’ me all over town.

Blow wind, rise up and blow it away!

Well, I’ve sought out the dark where the shadow can hide
but along with the dark comes the cold.
I’ve slunk back to the fire where the light is so bright;
Where the shadow stands stark and bold.

Blow wind, rise up and blow it away!
Ain’t no light gonna cause it to fade.
Rise up and blow it away.

Well, it tore up the lawn, and the garden was gone
When the wind fin’ly swept up my street.
And the shutters were clapping to it’s dark dreadful song
And my soul shuddered to its beat.
The soles of my feet were torn up, but free;
For the wind, it had taken its toll
And amidst all the carnage I knew that the roots
Of the shadow had been in my soul

Blow wind, rise up and blow it away!
Ain’t no light gonna cause it to fade.
Rise up and blow it away.
