Mean Ol' Wind Died Down

Lyrics: Luther Dickinson/North Mississippi Allstars
Music: Luther Dickinson/North Mississippi Allstars

Played by Luther Dickinson with Phil Lesh & Friends in April 2013.

I hear the wind blowing way on top of the hill
I hear the wind blowing way on top of the hill
Down in the valley, everything is still
I hear the wind blowing way on top of the hill

I climb to the top of the tallest tree
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
I climb to the top of the tallest tree
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)

I wanna feel the way it sounds
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down

Set me free, gravity bound
Set me free, gravity bound
Try to fly as high, Iím shackled to the ground
Set me free, gravity bound

Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)

Donít bury me in this cursed ground
Donít bury me in this cursed ground
When I die, let me fly, Iím nothing but a sound
Donít bury me in this cursed ground

Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)

Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
Mean olí wind died down (mean olí wind died down)
