Oh You Jealous Wind - Lyrics

Music and words by Kyle Dillingham

Oh you jealous wind, you try to chill my heart
Though you come in vain, in vain you shall not part
For you could never bring, through a thousand stormy nights
As cold a lonely memory, as when she turned out the lights 

I tried my best to give this heart away
But now I know she mustn’t stay
And now, I’ve cried the rest, but this story never ends
It just circles in my head, keeps me in my bed, all day long 

Oh you jealous wind, you try to chill my heart
Though you come in vain, in vain you shall not part
For you could never bring, through a thousand stormy nights
As cold a lonely memory, as when she turned out the lights 

Give me your hand, and I’ll walk with you this way
We just need some time to pray
But now, you’ve been so strong to turn and walk away
And though the thought brings me to tears, I’m turning to the years; please heal my soul

Oh you jealous wind, you try to chill my heart
Though you come in vain, in vain you shall not part
For you could never bring, through a thousand stormy nights
As cold a lonely memory, as when she turned out the lights

Instrumental

Good-bye’s so hard when you don’t want to go
But now I know I mustn’t stay
And now you’ve made it clear, by the things you’ve said and done
And though your heart may not agree with words you spoke to me, time will tell 

Oh you jealous wind, you try to chill my heart
Though you come in vain, in vain you shall not part
For you could never bring to me, through a thousand stormy nights
And though the thought brings me to tears, I’m turning to the years; please heal my soul
