blow you old winds of time

I was a young girl
When I came to this land
From a country far away
To a language I didn't understand
And I worked on a farm
And I married me a man
We got ourselves a homestead
On a section of land

And blow you old winds of time
You've wrinkled my face with your blowing
Well you've given me all that I have
But you've taken away my youth without me knowing

Well we sure had our bad times and our fun
And we paid all our taxes to the government of old Saskatchewan
And I raised up my kids 'till they finally raised away
And they drop in now and then
To visit on their holidays

Now they say I'm too old to cook and sew
And it's to an old folks home that they want me to go
But I'll stay here on my own 'till that wind blows me away
I've been through harder times than this
On less than pension pay

You say that I'm old
That I've just been through a lot
And the fact that I've lots of wrinkles
Just shows how hard I've fought

But blow you old winds of time
You've wrinkled my face with your blowing
Well you've given me all that I have
But you've taken away my life
Without me knowing

Hi,
I moderate a group called Earthtones, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
