  1. Peter, Paul & Mary - In The Wind Album Liner Notes Lyrics
  3. Uploaded by LOVE4LYRICS at
  5. (Bob Dylan)
  7. Snow was piled up the stairs an onto the street that first
  8. winter when I laid around New York City
  9. It was a different street then-
  10. It was a different village-
  11. Nobody had nothin-
  12. There was nothin t get-
  13. Instead a bein drawn for money you were drawn
  14. for other people-
  15. Everybody used t hang around a heat pipe poundin subterranean
  16. coffee house called the Gaslight-
  17. It was at that time buried beneath the middle a MacDougal Street-
  18. It was a strange place an not out a any schoolbook-
  19. More'n seven nites a week the cops and firemen'd storm down the
  20. steps handin' out summons for trumped up reasons-
  21. More'n five nites a week out a town bullies'd start trouble an
  22. everybody from John the owner t Dave the cook t Rod the cash
  23. register ringer t Adele the waitress t anybody who was on the
  24. stage t just plain friends who were hangin around would have
  25. t come up swingin dishes an handles an brooms an chairs an
  26. sometimes even swords 'at hung on the wall in order t match
  27. the bullies' weight an the bullies was always big bullies-
  28. Everybody that hung out at the Gaslight was close-
  29. Yuh had t be-
  30. In order t keep from going insane and in order t survive-
  31. An it can't be denied-
  32. It was a hangout-
  33. But not like the street corner-
  34. Down there we weren't standin lookin out at the world watchin
  35. girls-and findin out how they walk-
  36. We was lookin at each other ... and findin out about ourselves-
  37. It is 'f these times that I remember most sadly-
  38. For they're gone-
  39. An they'll not never come again-
  40. It is 'f these times I think about now-
  41. I think back t one a them nites when the doors was locked
  42. an maybe thirty or forty people sat as close t the stage as
  43. they could-
  44. It was another nite past one o'clock an that meant that the
  45. tourists on the street coundn't get in-
  46. At these hours there was no tellin what was bound t happen-
  47. Never never could the greatest prophesizor ever guess it-
  48. There was not such a thing as an audience-
  49. There was not such a thing as performers-
  50. Everybody did somethin-
  51. An had something t say about somethin-
  52. I remember Hugh who wore different kinda clothes then but
  53. still shouted an tongue twisted flowin lines a poetry
  54. that anybody who could be struck by the sounds 'f a rock
  55. hittin a brick wall could understand-
  56. I remember Luke playin his banjo and singin "East Virginia"
  57. with a tone as soft as the snow outside an "Mr. Garfield"
  58. with a bitin touch as hard as the stovepipe on the inside-
  59. An Dave singin "House a the Risin Sun" with his back leaned
  60. against the bricks an words runnin out in a lonesome
  61. hungry growlin whisper that any girl with her face hid in the
  62. dark could understand-
  63. Paul then was a guitar player singer comedian-
  64. But not the funny ha ha kind-
  65. His funnyness could only be defined an described by the word
  66. "hip" or "hyp"-
  67. A combination a Charlie Chaplin Jonathan Winters and Peter Lorre-
  68. Maybe it was that nite that somebody flicked a piece a card-
  69. board in fron a the tiny spotlight an he made quick jerky
  70. movements on the stage and everybody's eyes was seein first
  71. hand a silent movie for real-
  72. The bearded villan 'f an out a print picture-
  73. There aint room enuff on thepaper t tell about everybody
  74. that was there an exactly what they did-
  75. Every nite was a true high degree novel-
  76. Anyway it was one a these nites when Paul said
  77. "Yuh gotta now hear me an Peter an Mary sing"
  78. Mary's hair was down almost t her waist then-
  79. An Peter's beard was only about half grown-
  80. An the Gaslight stage was smaller
  81. An the song they sung was younger-
  82. But the walls shook
  83. An everybody smiled-
  84. An everybody felt good-
  85. An down there approval didn't come with the clappin a hands
  86. at the end 'f the song-
  87. It came burstin out anytime any way it felt like
  88. burstin out-
  89. An they were approved-
  90. By the people watchin 'm and by 'mselves-
  91. Which really was one-
  92. An that's where the beginnin was at-
  93. Inside them walls 'f a subterranean world-
  94. But it's a concrete kind a beginnin-
  95. It's concrete cause it's close-
  96. An that feelin aint t be forgotten-
  97. Yuh carry it with yuh-
  98. It's a feelin that's born an not bought
  99. An it can't be taught-
  100. An by livin with it yuh learn t see and know it in other
  101. people-
  102. T sing an speak as one yuh gotta think as one-
  103. An yuh gotta believe as one-
  104. An yuh gotta feel as one-
  105. An Peter an Paul and Mary're now carryin the feelin
  106. that was inside them walls up the steps t the whole
  107. outside world-
  109. The rooster never crowed on MacDougal Street-
  110. There was no dew on the grass an the sun never came shinin
  111. over the mountain-
  112. There was nothin t tell yuh it was morning cept the
  113. pins and needles feelin in yer arms an legs from stayin
  114. up all nite-
  115. But all 'f us find our way a knowing when it's mornin-
  116. An once yuh know the feelin it don't change-
  117. It can only grow-
  118. For Peter's grown
  119. An Paul's grown
  120. An Mary's grown
  121. An the times've grown
