WINDS OF MORNING (air: 'Dumbarton's drums')
(Lyrics – Tommy Makem)

I've walked the hills when rain was falling
Rested by a wide oak tree
Heard a lark sing high at evening
Caught a moonbeam on the sea

Chorus:

Softly blow ye winds of morning
Sing ye winds your mournful sound
Blow ye from the earth's four corners
Guide this traveller where he's bound

I've helped a ploughman tend his horses
Heard a rippling river sing
Talked to stars when night was falling
Seen a primrose welcome spring

Chorus

By foreign shores, my feet have wandered
Heard a stranger call me friend
Every time my mind was troubled
Found a smile around the bend

Chorus

There's a ship stands in the harbour
All prepared to cross the foam
Far off hills were fair and friendly
Still there's fairer hills at home

Chorus

Hi, Dave -

Here are the lyrics and chords from The Irish Songbook, by the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem (Oak Publications, 1979), page 122-123 .

WINDS OF MORNING
(Tommy Makem, 1966)

I've walked the hills when rain was falling,
Rested by a wide oak tree,
Heard a lark sing high at evening,
Caught a moonbeam on the sea.

CHORUS
Softly blow ye winds of morning;
Sing, ye winds, your mournful sound.
Blow ye from the earth's four corners;
Guide this trav'ler where he's bound.

By foreign shores my feet have wandered,
Heard a stranger call me friend;
Every time my mind was troubled,
Found a smile around the bend.

CHORUS

I've helped a ploughman tend his horses,
Heard a rippling river sing,
Talked to stars when night was falling,
Seen a primrose welcome spring.

CHORUS

There's a ship stands in the harbour,
All prepared to cross the foam;
Far off hills were fair and friendly,
Still there's fairer hills at home.

CHORUS

first recording was 1967
Notes: This was written by Tommy Makem on the New York subway, which always inspires him to make songs about mountains and sea and sweet, clean air.
