Like A Straw In The Wind (Streisand Barbra)

Like a straw in the wind I go whirling around Like a bird who's just learnin' to fly Feet are not on the ground Drift from pillar to post So helplessly What wanted the most Winds up a ghostly memory My man is gone And when your man is gone Your world just falls apart Hmm... nothing you try to do Helps you to comfort your heart Don't yo' heart get all the bricks Where your hopes come unpinned Trouble steps in and make You feel like a straw in the wind Like a straw in the wind Free and easy That's my style I go whirling around Howdy-do me? Watch me smile Like a bird who's just learin' to fly Fare-the-well me after a while Feet are not on the ground So I gotta roam Drift from pillar to post Sweetenin' water Cherry wine So helplessly Thank you kindly suits me fine What I wanted the most Winds up a ghostly memory My man is gone And when your man is gone Your world just falls apart So any place I hang my hat is home Birds roostin' in a tree Pick up and go And the goin' proves That's how it oughta be I pick up too When the spirit moves me Cross the river, round the bend Howdy stranger? So long friend There is a voice in the lonesome wind I hear a-whisperin' roam I'm goin' where a welcome mat is, No matter where that is... Cause any place I hang my hat is home!
