"The Wind is Blowing On Christmas Day" -  Grant Collinsworth

Put away your guns; its Christmas time again...
Call your daughters; call your sons

and all of your friends.
Think of all the children prying underneath the tree;
Sip your granny's wine; It's guaranteed

to knock you clean... 

 

The biggest fortune is the fact you're sitting here.
Take time to thank the lord

you made it through the year.
It seems our troubles should

be taking second place...

On Christmas day...
Yeah, Christmas day...

 

Your neighbor Smugly claims he's waiting on a call...
What he's really saying

isnt really that at all...
Would it be beyond you if you set an extra place...?
Since he lost his family,

he ain't seen another face...

 

It doesnt have to come in any special wrap.
It works the same throughout

for every girl or chap.
The fire's warm and there's a lot to go around...

On Christmas day...
Yeah, Christmas day...

Well the streets are cold; the wind is blowing...
If hadnt been the mission, I'd be frozen...
Would you buy this apple, please...or take this flower?
You're the first one that I've seen within this hour. 

 

Oh forget the hate and discontent of yesterday.
Now its time to love each other in your special way...
Cause the streets are cold; the wind is blowing...
On Christmas day...

 

Call your daughters and your sons...
Think of all the children...
Put away your guns...

 

Call your daughters and your sons...
Think of all the children...
Put away your guns!


Well the streets are cold; the wind is blowing...
If hadnt been generosity, I'd be broken...
Well forget the hate and discontent of yesterday..
On Christmas day...

(Think of all the children...)
