Tex Ritter — The Wayward Wind lyrics

[Chorus:]
Oh, the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And I was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

In a lonely shack by a railroad track
I spent my younger days
And I guess the sound
Of the outward bound
Made me a slave to my wandering ways

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And I was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

Oh, I met a girl in a border town
I vowed we'd never part
Though I tried his best to settle down
She's now alone with a broken heart

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And I was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

The next of kin to the wayward wind
The wayward wind
