Lyrics

Wind On My Back

Music and lyrics by David Ogrodowczyk, May 28, 2016

When I took your hand all those years ago
I made you a promise from deep in my soul
To love you and keep all our days till the end
my one true companion my lover my friend

And now here we stand with our worn wedding bands
Silver and gold all our dreams and our plans
Our journey is long our pace fast then slow
We push then we pull we ebb and we flow

Chorus:
You are the light on my darkest shore
My beacon of hope my anchor my strength
My heart is so full of your warm embrace
The wind on my back and the sun on my face


We built our family four children our own
We taught them to love and to heal and to grow
Our song carried high then drifted in low
Rolling along here come the SIXOS

Our oldest a dancer she left us too soon
We struggled we crashed then we rose and we flew
Our children now grown have found their own way
Their gifts like the sun shining each day (Chorus)


So now here we stand with our worn wedding bands
Silver and gold all our dreams and our plans
It was a warm summer night fifty years ago
We promised each other to have and to hold (Chorus)
