Wind Don't Have To Hurry
written by John Hiatt

The wind don't have to hurry
Blowin' across my bones
Rollin' out the pastures
Smoothin' out the stones

There's fire on the mountain
Dark angels in the trees
The wind don't have to hurry
They're takin' what they please

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na

Now the thought police are coming
Right up to your door
They say you have no liberty
If you're who they're looking for

No writ of habeas corpus
No platform of descent
The wind don't have to hurry
Only the wind knows where you went

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na

The wind don't have to hurry
Blowing through my soul
I sold for gold and diamonds
And buried in this hole

They bought my love a pistol
They put it to her head
Now the wind don't have to hurry
She was already dead

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
