Manzanita Wind

03:30
Spring Color Project 1993
Produced by Ian Townend

Story

I wrote this song in the 90's about hanging out in Manzanita, Oregon - our favorite coastal town. This recording was made in 1993 when my voice was alot higher! Would love to record it again on a collection of ocean songs and in a key that lends itself to my current vocal range.  I wouldn't change anything about the music though - I love the sweet jazz groove of the guitar, even though when I play it live it's on keyboard.

Lyrics

LYRICS:

The wind is high again today But it’s ok – the sun is shining

I came to see the wind surfers play and watch the kites fly high in the sky

Chorus:  Manzanita Wind is blowin not quite out of control

If you come to Manzanita, there’s one thing you should know:  The wind does blow

Just a little coastal paradise - quaint little town - not much around

Living is easy and really quite nice - old fashioned store with a wooden screen door

Chorus:  Manzanita Wind is blowin not quite out of control

If you come to Manzanita, there’s one thing you should know:  The wind does blow

Bridge:  Funny how an earthly place can make you feel at home

Welcomes you with unseen arms as if you were its own

Always seems so strange to leave like you’re not meant to go

Quietly she reassures you’ll be back before you know

Vivid color- sea and sky - crystal blue and clean bright white

Sun disappears into the night - Wind finally mellows blowin’ just right

C:  Manzanita Wind is blowin - calls across the miles

Come, she says, to Manzanita - I’d like to see you smile - Come stay awhile

Tag:  Manzanita Wind – blowin again

Manzanita Wind – callin me callin me …
