Intro: G F (repeat)
Verse 1
My [C]heavy [Em7]heart pounds [Am]hard [G]tonight
Down this [F]highway in the wind
The [G]windshield wipers clean away
The [Am]tears I cry [C]within
The [C]Love I've [Em7]thrown [Am]away, I [G]know,
I'll [F]never feel again...
And [G]I, [F]I'm just Twistin' in the [C]Wind
[G]Some one cut me down from here
I can't [F]prove what don't [C]exist
[G]Did you feel the same as I?
Or was there [Am]something I might have [G]missed?
I [F]turned my back on [C]everyone
Who [F]wanted me to [C]win
I [F]needed you so [C]bad, I guess
That's the [Am]way I was back [G]then
[G]Now I, [F]I'm just Twistin' in the [C]Wind
Verse 2
I believe I'll go down to the bridge
And watch the trains roll by
See the sparks fly from their wheels
Where the rocks and the cinders lie
The weight I feel inside tonight
Could put a freight train in a spin
And I, I'm just Twistin' in the Wind
Repeat Chorus
Verse 3
Love made a fool of me
At the gates of the guillotine
I can't believe I heard the Truth
Comin' from your answering machine
How did I become this broken man?
Was I too blind to bend?
Now I, I'm just Twistin' in the Wind
I, yi yi yi, I'm just Twistin' in the Wind
[G]Some one cut me down from here
I been [F]Hangin' here too [C]long
[G]Release me from the Binds of Love
I [F]can't tell Right from [C]Wrong
