Wind That Shakes The Barley

Lyrics: Fraser McGill
Music: Fraser McGill, Drew Mayo, Kristen Vandling & Colin Hall

There used to be a wee Jack Russell dog
And he went by the name of Charlie
He barked and wailed about the Summer of Love
But it's the wind thats shaking the barley

And you know where it grows
In the fields and meadows of someday
And you know how it goes
On the plough and the stars and the subway

I used to know a wee Irish lad
And he went by the name of Farley
He couldn't speak a word of the English tongue
So they hung him on the galley

And you know where it grows
In the fields and meadows of someday
And you know how it goes
On the plough and the stars and the subway

Now the Angel from Hell screaming down the road
On his ripped and torn up Harley
And he's trying to tell from his prison cell
That it's the wind that's shaking the barley

And you know where it grows
In the fields and meadows of someday
And you know how it goes
On the plough and the stars and the subway

Green grow the rushes, o
C'mon!

I used to know a wee Jack Russell dog
And he went by the name of Charlie
He barked and wailed about the Summer of Love
But it's the wind that shakes the barley

And you know where it grows
In the fields and meadows of someday
And you know how it goes
On the plough and the stars and the subway
