Drifter's Wind

album: Drifter's Wind (1985), track 3 of 10
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

He blew in on a wayward gust
What you might call a drifter's wind
A six-foot frame of hobo dust
A rugged life had sifted thin
From Alberta to Coeur D'Alene
There he met his second wife
Got as far as Abilene
And he gave up the married life
Married life fit like a glove
Kind of tight and kind of thin
Whoever wrote the book of love
Never heard of the Drifter's Wind
   Riding easy, on the lone prairie
   Rolling tumbleweeds, far as you can see
   One lone cowboy, from Calgary
   Drifting lonely, drifting free
     Badly written's what he says
     Sadly written's what he means
     Whoever wrote the book of love
     Wrote a romance magazine
He's driftin' lonely, driftin' free
