Sweet Rogue Wind
A poet-buddy of mine named Karen Heywood and I decided to collaborate on a song. We'd appreciate any thoughts/criticisms/ideas you might care to share. I really think this one might be attractive to a performing artist, if anyone happens to know one (hint hint)... 

Sweet Rogue Wind

 

Sweet rogue wind, won’t you sweep away my troubles,

take me way down yonder where the water lilies grow,

Love’s sweet twin, please hold me up, don’t let me wander,

carry me to goodness, it’s the only way to go.

 

(refrain)

Tenderest of mercies, won’t you lay down by my side,

snuggle up against me as you share my final ride;

sweet rogue wind, won’t you sweep away my troubles,

take me way down yonder where the water lilies grow.

 

Through the fog I travel, passion glowing in my eyes,

It lights my way past roads that fork, ‘midst dark and stormy skies; 

Carry me to that water town and lay me on the bank,

then one last time, with words that rhyme, I’ll give that girl my thanks.

 

(refrain)

Tenderest of mercies, won’t you lay down by my side,

snuggle up against me as you share my final ride;

sweet rogue wind, won’t you sweep away my troubles,

take me way down yonder where the water lilies grow.

 

Sweet rogue wind, won’t you tell her that I love her,

that I’ll put no one above her no matter where she roams;

cover her with all your grace, now please don’t let me down,

slow or fast our passions last, wherever love is found.

 

refrain)

Tenderest of mercies, won’t you lay down by my side,

snuggle up against me as you share my final ride;

sweet rogue wind, won’t you sweep away my troubles,

take me way down yonder where the water lilies grow.
