lyrics

Got a wife and kids
back in Baltimore
But I aint coming back
I put it all in a gunny-sack
and headed for the war

I was looking for salvation
Looking for a thrill
But all I found
Was that cutting wind

That cutting wind
Will tear you to pieces
And that cutting wind
Will show you no mercy

So come when the water's high
With a twinkle in your blue eyes
That cutting wind will blow you home again

Slick rifle hand
Shake me to my marrow
But I'm a child of sin
My numbers coming in
The day after tomorrow

With a nickels worth of dimes, Lord
For every town I been
And every time I faced that cutting wind

That cutting wind…

To lay down my arms
And jump across the ocean
To be home again
With my wife and kid
Is all that I am hopin'

But I cannot catch a break
And we cannot seem to win
And all we find is that cutting wind

That cutting…
