Originaltext

Windy town

Driving home from the highland line
We done some gigs on the Clyde and the Tyne
They flew us in from a Hamburg strip
The taste of Dusseldorf still on our lips
And on the bus there is a friend of mine
We go way back to the scene of the crime
We sit up front and share a cigarette
And try to remember what we tried to forget

He say "Do you remember?"
He say "Do you recall?"
I say yeah I remember, oh, I remember it all
Every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound
Late night trains shunting down by the river
I remember windy town

We come so far and we move so fast
Making hay see it all go past
Round the world and round again
Up and down on that gravy train
but every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound
The east coast cross winds on the cold wet stone
I remember windy town

The freezing corners and the empty streets
The burning passion and the cold wet feet
Three tricky miles home every night
Dodging from the shadows underneath those amber light
No car for kissing and nowhere to go
Except inside each other and I loved you so
I held your face as you shivered in the rain
Girl I'll always love you and I'll love you again
Oh everytime, everytime
Every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound
Late night trains shunting down by the river
I remember windy town

Every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound
The east coast cross winds on the cold wet stone
I remember windy town
 

Singing Call Sheet

Windy town

Open
Circle left
Driving down from the highland line
We done some gigs on the Clyde and the Tyne
Left alemande your corner, turn your partner right
Left alemande and you weave the ring
And on the bus there is a friend of mine
We go way back to the scene of the crime (or: swing and promenade)
We sit up front and share a cigarette
And try to remember what we tried to forget
Figure
The heads square thru and count it four hands you know
Find the corner lady and you do a dosado
Swing thru the boys run right
Bend the line, right and left thru turn your girl
All pass the ocean here swing thru
Swing your corner girl and then you all promenade
We sit up front and share a cigarette
And try to remember what we tried to forget

Break & Close
Sides face grand square
He say "Do you remember?"
He say "Do you recall?"
I say yeah I remember, oh, I remember it all
Alemande left and weave the ring
Every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound (or: swing and promenade)
Late night trains shunting down by the river
I remember windy town

Tag
Alemande left your corner
Swing your partner
Everytime I hear that sound.
