Song Lyric Sunday – Cold Wind In August

This week Jim Adams has prompted us with Freeze/Cold/Ice for Song Lyric Sunday. For some reason I found this very difficult. I found some songs but they weren’t speaking to me. After some digging I come up with this early Van Morrison number called “Cold Wind In August” from his 1977 Period of Transition album.

Van Morrison is one of my favorite artists. He, to this day, is still performing and recording high quality work. I’ll never tire of listening to him. Hope you enjoy it too.

Have a great Sunday!





Lyrics - Cold Wind In August
Van Morrison


I waited for you
You waited for me
That it seemed like, seemed like a mighty long time
 
Baby I had to have you
Oh, I had to have you
Come rain, rain or shine
 
It was a cold wind in August
Shivers up and down my spine
I was standin' in your garden
In the California pine
 
I was standing shivering
I've got the fever in the rain
But I can't come on back to see you
Again and again and again
 
I said I, I had to have you
Baby I had to have you
Come rain, come rain or shine
 
It was a cold wind in August
Shivers up and down my spine
And I was standing in your garden
 
In the California pine
California pine
 
It was a cold wind in August
Shivers up and down my spine
I was standin' in your garden
In the California pine
In the California pine It was a cold wind in August
I was pushed on through September
Oh pushin' through September
In the rain

Pushin' through, pushin' through September
In the rain
 
Ooh
It was a cold wind in August
Shivers up and down my spine
I was standin', standin' in your garden
In the California pine

    Oh Christine I’m but putty in your hands, Van Morrison’s music and lyrics, melts me every time
    “It was a cold wind in August
    Shivers up and down my spine
    And I was standing in your garden
    In the California pine”
