The Wind & Rain Lyrics

Musical by Dave Malloy (2014)
Ghost Quartet the Musical - The Wind & Rain Lyrics

GELSEY
There were two sisters who lived by the sea
Oh, the wind and rain
And the youngest one loved a man in the trees
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

GELSEY & BRITTAIN
But the man broke her heart like he didn’t care
Oh, the wind and rain
And the sister ran her fingers through his hair
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

So the younger got drunk on whiskey and wine
Oh, the wind and rain
Screamed his name and it echoed through the pines
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

And she pushed her sister in the river to drown
Oh, the wind and rain
And watched her coldly as she floated down
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

ALL
And she floated till she came to the miller’s pond
Oh, the wind and rain
Dead on the water like a golden swan
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

And the miller pulled her out with a rusty fishing hook
Oh, the wind and rain
Drew that fair maid from the cold cold brook, cryin’
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

And he left her bones on the banks to dry
Oh, the wind and rain
Left her bones there right under the sky, cryin’
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

And along the road came a fiddler fair
Oh, the wind and rain
And found her bones just a lying there, cried
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

And he made a little fiddle of her breast bone
Oh, the wind and rain
Made a little fiddle of her breast bone, cryin’
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

And he strung his fiddle bow with her long brown hair
Oh, the wind and rain
Strung his fiddle bow with her long brown hair, cryin’
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain

GELSEY & BRITTAIN
But the only tune that the fiddle would play was
Oh, the wind and rain
The only tune that the fiddle would play was
Oh, the dreadful wind and rain
