Westwind Lyrics

by Nina Simone

"Hello, oh yeah, I'm glad to see you, glad to see you. They tell me it's a full house it's full.
This is a good time to introduce you to the heart beat of our organization, the pulse of everything that we do: it centers around the drums and of course if you think about that really seriously you know that your entire life is centered around your heart beat, and that's rhythm is it not'
This song was ' eh 'I was told to sing by Miriam Makeba and she is my dear friend, and it is a prayer those of you who are fans of hers will remember this song."

Westwind blow ye gentle
For the souls of yesterday
My sons, proud and noble
Here within my heart they lay they lay

Westwind with your wisdom
Gather all the young for me
Black cloud hanging over
Nest your bosom strong and free

Guard each gallant warrior's claim
Guard each gallant warrior's claim
'Cause I am the soil from which they came
I am the soil from which they came

So Westwind with your splendor
Take my people by the hand
Spread your glory, sunshine
And unify my promised land

Unify us don't divide us unify us don't divide us
Unify us don't divide us unify us don't divide us
Unify us don't divide us unify us don't divide us
Unify us don't divide us

Westwind with your splendor
Take my people by the hand
Spread your glory, sunshine
And unify my promised land
Unify my promised land
Unify my promised land
