Chorus:
Oh, The Way - ward Wind, Is a rest - less wind,
A rest - less wind, That yearns to wan - der;
And I was born the next of kin,
The next of kin, To The Way - ward Wind.
 
First Verse:
In a lone - ly shack by a rail - road track,  I spent my young - er days.
And I guess the sound of the out - ward bound,  Made me a slave,
To his wand - rin' ways.
 
Second Verse:
Oh I met him there in a bor - der town,  He vowed wed nev - er part,
'Tho he tried his best to set - tle down, I'm now a - lone,
With a brok - in heart.
