The summer wind came blowin' in across the sea,
It lingered there to touch your hair and walk with me;
All summer long we sang a song and strolled in golden sand,
Two sweethearts and the summer wind.
Like painted kites, the days and nights went flying by;
The world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky.
Then softer than a piper man, one day it called to you -
I lost you to the summer wind.
(Key change to E)
The autumn wind, the winter winds have come and gone;
And still the days, the lonely days, go on and on.
And guess who sighs his lullabies though nights that never end?
My fickle friend, the summer wind.
The summer wind, the summer wind.
