She Goes Where The Wind Blows
Verse/Chorus
Verse 1:
She knows her days in her hometown are few
She packs up her pickup, she’s just twenty-two
She drives to the west wind from East Tennessee
No thought of where the road ending may be

Chorus 1:
She goes where the wind blows
Where will she appear
She goes where her heart knows
She need not adhere
Breeze on her face and eyes full of cheer
She goes where the wind blows
Will it bring her here

Verse 2:
She drifts to Dallas where cowboys are few
She works as a waitress, a beaut chaps pursue
But white lace and vows she vows never to see
She hears the wind wail for her to be free

Chorus 2:
She goes where the wind blows
Where will she appear
She goes where her heart knows
She need not adhere
Breeze on her face and motives sincere
She goes where the wind blows
Will it bring her here

Verse 3:
She flees to Phoenix with clear desert air
She sells beaded jewelry for hair at the fair
But rodeo cowboys tug hard on her heart
She heeds the wind’s whine to make a new start

Chorus 3:
She goes where the wind blows
Where will she appear
She goes where her heart knows
She need not adhere
Breeze on her face trace tracks of her tears
She goes where the wind blows
Will it bring her here

Verse 4:
Finds life in Frisco with fog infused air
She live by the seaside, sells shirts with a flair
But lovers are few, and she so longs to be
Where the wind song sings from East Tennessee

Chorus 4:
She goes where the wind blows
Where next will she roam
She goes where her heart knows
She won’t be alone
Wind at her back and memories dear
She goes where the wind blows
Will it bring her home

Post Chorus:
She goes where the wind blows, it’s clear

Nice! Easy going, drifting feeling to it which suits the lyric. You've made her seem very appealing with just a few brushstrokes!

In my head I'm re-arranging the chorus:
She goes where the wind blows
She goes where her heart knows
She need not adhere
Breeze on her face and eyes full of cheer
She goes where the wind blows, it’s clear
Will it bring her here

Great lyric, and very musical. One suggestion:

No thought of where the road ending may be 
(No thought of where the end of the road may be). Scans better to my ear.

Thanks for the suggested chorus change, RD Man. I like the idea of ending it with, “will it bring her here,” so I changed it accordingly. But I didn’t just rearranged the lines. Check it out.

Yep, the "Will it bring her here" works well to end the chorus. Cool!

Thanks for the suggestion, Mike, but it’ll add an extra syllable to the line and I’d have to adjust the other verses accordingly. I try to make the like stanzas match to make it easier for the composer. The last line of the other verses were flowing nicely and I didn’t want to throw a monkey wrench into them.
