SOUTHEAST WIND (Rita MacNeil (m & l) 1990) Rita MacNeil 1990 Rita MacNeil composes music and lyrics together spontaneously before recording to tape and has over 200 BMI registrations in 38 years. David and I collected old bottles Ladderback chairs and broken down rockers When we first came together we had such ideas Full of the future and full of good feelings. David and I bought a farm in the country Tore down walls and planted tall trees Set up in the comfort of workin' and sharin' And plannin' the lifetime of livin' together. Then the southeast wind came and blew up my mind Tore up the memories I'd long left behind Started me thinkin', and started me beamin' But most of all it started me dreamin'. (bridge) David and I gathered up our belongings Parted the ways when the dream started fallin' We listened to children on separate occasions And justified loneliness whenever we're able. David and I live in separate places And sometimes I run out to live in the spaces I sit in the rocker, set chairs 'round the table And bury my past with gentle persuasion. Then the southeast wind came and blew up my mind Tore up the memories I'd long left behind Started me thinkin' and started me beamin' But most of all it started me dreamin'. But most of all... it started me dreamin'. (Transcribed by David Story - August 2013)
