Wild Is the Wind

Words & Music by Dimitri Tiomkin & Ned Washington
Recorded by Johnny Mathis, 1957 (#22)

Am        Em7     Dm7     F
Love me, love me, say you do!

Am     Em7   F       Dm7
Let me fly away with you,

G      G7       C9      Am7
For my love is like the wind,

Em   B+         Em9      
And wild is the wind.

Am       Em7      Dm7     F
Give me more than one caress,

Am   Em7     F       Dm7
Satisfy this hungriness;

G        G7         C9         Am7
Let the wind blow through your heart,

    Em   B+     Em9   B7
For wild is the wind.


C   G Am      Am7/G Dm           Dm+7           Dm7  G7
You  touch me,        I hear the sound of mandolins;

Dm7 G7  Dm7    G7 Am              E7             Am
You    kiss me,     and with your kiss the world begins.

F       G7           CM7 Am7
You're Spring to me, all things to me,

       Cdim    E7
You're life itself.

Am     Em7        Dm7     F
Like a leaf clings to a tree,

Am      Em7      F       Dm7
Oh, my darling, cling to me,

G          G7       C9     Am7
For we're creatures of the wind,

    Fdim E7     Am        Dm7
And wild is the wind, the wind,

Fdim E7    Dm7   E7  A    A9     A
Wild is my love for you.
