VERSE 1

Dm ------------------Bb

I saw an orange robe burning

Dm-------------------Bb

I saw a youth on fire

Dm ------------------------Bb-----------------------Gm-----------------------C

I saw metal machines that were turning On a generation that hadn't yet tired

----------------Dm----------------Bb-------------------------Dm--------------------------------Bb

I heard of two generations being murdered In a Europe that was shrouded in black

Dm / Bb/ Gm/ C/

I witnessed the birth pains of new nations When the chosen people finally went back

 

CHORUS

Dm

North Winds Blowing

Bb

I wish it would Blow all away

Dm

North Winds Blowing

Bb/ Dm / Bb/ Dm/

I wish they would blow all away I wish they would blow all away

 

VERSE 2

I saw freedom in the shape of disease

And mainly men had to quench their desire

And while a few could do just as they pleased

I saw kids whose bellies were all on fire

When all is dead and war is over

When hollow victory has been won

Who will join in the celebration

Of the evil that just can't be undone?

 

CHORUS

 

VERSE 3

I used to dream about destruction But now that I feel it getting near

I spend my time watching the ocean

And waves are all I want to hear

I wish I was a believer

I'd spend less time in being sad

So many laws against disbelieving

Don't know who's good or who's bad
