Winds Of Yesterday 
Boxcar Willie

Intro: D-G-D-A7-D

D                   G             D
Sometimes at night when I'm all alone, 
                            A7
The sounds of the day fade away,
  D               G        D
Alone in my room with my memories, 
          G     D   A7     D
Winds of yesterday blow on me. 

         G                     D
I hear country music on the radio, 
                                A7
The way that it was a long time ago, 
          D                             G                  D
And the sound of Mama singin', comes driftin' through the trees, 
                   G     D   A7     D  (D-G-D-A7-D)
When the winds of yesterday blow on me. 

D                             G                D
I see a moon so bright over cotton fields of white, 
                                      A7
The fragrance of magnolias ride the breeze, 
           D                               G                 D    
And that little two room school, where I learned the Golden Rule, 
                  G     D   A7     D
And the winds of yesterday blow on me.
 
        G                           D
I see children at the old swimmin' hole, 
                                           A7
And fishin' on the river with an old cane pole,
       D                      G           D
Each memory is so dear, each face is so clear, 
                   G     D   A7     D
When the winds of yesterday blow on me.

Instr… D-G-D-A7-D
       G                    D 
I can hear the choir sing, how their voices ring, 
                              A7
I remember the words to each song, 
D                               G                          D
“Oh and that old preacher man, once more sets my heart at ease,“
                   G     D   A7     D
When the winds of yesterday blow on me. 
                   G     D   A7     D
When the winds of yesterday blow on me.
