You, Me, and All of the Above

The Everywhichway Wind

I’ve always loved the poem “Who has Seen the Wind?” by Robert Louis Stevenson, and this song is written in that spirit.  I wrote it to sing for children, but soon realized that it’s an all-ages song.


1. The everywhichway wind is blowing

Everywhichway, up and down

It blows upon the ships at sea

And on the children in the town.


Oh - It's coming round again

Blows you up and blows you down,

the everywhichway wind

Oh - It's rising up again

Blows you all around the town,

the everywhichway wind!

2. The everywhichway wind is blowing

Everywhichway, everywhere

It slaps my clothes and scatters leaves

And makes a bird nest in my hair!

3. It sends the empty trashcans flying

Booming as they roll along

It snaps the branches off the trees

And sings a wild and windy song!

4. It brings the warmth of summer heat

It brings the sleet and driving rain

The winter winds blow cold and then

It brings the breeze of spring again!

5. Tell me wind, where are you going?

Tell me why you blow so wild

The next direction never knowing

Chasing round me like a child!
