Big Wind

Big Wind

Porter Wagoner

From daylight till dusk, we've been a workin' in the dust
Pickin' cotton workin' side by side
Well, I can't forget yes, I remember yet
The way my daddy looked at me and cried

"Big wind's a comin' listen to the hummin'
Hurry up son be quick don't stall
You know we can't be slow, take the kids and get below
If we don't hurry it'll surely get us all"

Well, I ran across the field, so scared my lips was sealed
To warn my mom the storm is on its way
Well, I knew I'd won my race when I saw my mammy's face
And the way she looked at me and said

"Big wind's a comin' listen to the hummin'
Hurry up son be quick don't stall
You know we can't be slow, take the kids and get below
If we don't hurry it'll surely get us all"

Oh, but dad was on the cellar and by now the sky was yellow
The wind was a blowin' trees were fallin'
And outside I heard him cryin' and as he lay there dyin'
It seemed I could still hear him callin'

"Son big wind's a comin' listen to the hummin'
Hurry up son be quick don't stall
You know we can't be slow, take the kids and get below
If we don't hurry it'll surely get us all"

Big wind, big wind's a comin'
