1. What colour is the wind, Daddy,

                                    G      - C

    is it yellow, red or blue ?

                                               Em

    when he's playing with my hair, Daddy,

                                             D      - D7

    does he do the same to you ?

                                                C

    When he's dying, does his colour fade ?

                                  - G                   Em

    Is a gentle breeze         a lighter shade ?

                                          D    - D7                                     G      - D

    Just like his friend, the sea,         the wind feels blue to me.

 

                                                   G                  - C

2. When the blackbird starts to sing, Daddy,

                                             G        - C

    do the flowers hear him, too ?

                                               Em

    When he's pouring out his heart, Daddy,

                                         D      - D7

    tell me, what do roses do ?

                                           - C

    Do they cast their scent         upon the air,

                               - G                        Em

    and is fragrance       just a rose in prayer ?

                                           D    - D7                                            G     - G7

    Giving thanks to God above         for the blackbird's song of love.

 

       C                G     - D                  G      - G7

    Blow, wind, blow,        wild and free,

C                    G                   D  D7   G

    my Daddy says, you're a lot like me.

 

D                                          C            G

    I know each colour, its shape and size,

D                               - D                 D7         G       - Am

    I've seen them all        with my Daddy's eyes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

          D                           G                  - C

3. I know that grass is green, Daddy,

                                          G      - C

    I've touched it with my toes,

                                     Em

    and snow is purest white, Daddy,

                                  D      - D7

    I've felt it with my nose.

                                          - C

    But my favourite colour         has to be

                                 G          Em

    the colour of your love for me,

                                        D    - D7                                G     - G7

    and Daddy, I've been told         that love is always gold.

 

       C                G     - D                  G       - G7

    Blow, wind, blow,        wild and free,

C                    G                   D  D7   G     - G7

    my Daddy says, you're a lot like me,

C                    G                   D   D7  G    - D

    my Daddy says, you're a lot like me.
