Lee Marvin “Wand'rin' Star” #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton #Travler

Introduction:

Nights are long when it's cold and you're waiting for a train.”

~ Jean-Marie G. Le Clézio

I drove to Coffee, Texas which is on the edge of Lake Palestine… It was brilliant and I know I will be back to catch a sunset, soon.

The song that I am going to feature this evening is titled “Wand'rin' Star” and it’s sung by the brilliant and talented Lee Marvin. Oh yes, I feeling this song tonight!!

Lee Marvin was an American film and television actor born in New York City on February 19, 1924. He has a deep, distinctive voice, white hair and was a amazing actor/singer. I never knew he sang. He passed away in Tucson, Arizona at the age of 63.

"Wand'rin' Star" was a number one single in the UK and Ireland for Lee Marvin for three weeks in March 1970. What a brilliant song and I would suspect that genre is folk. This video was uploaded on Feb 9, 2008 by Sam Wghtman. A favorite of a dear friend and to him I dedicate this post.

I am listing the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.


"Wand'rin' Star" (3)
I was born under a wanderin' star.
I was born under a wanderin' star.

Wheels are made for rollin', mules are made to pack.
I've never seen a site that didn't look better lookin' back.

I was born under a wanderin' star.

Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry.
Snow can burn your eyes but only people make you cry.
Home is made for comin' from, for dreams of goin' to.
Which with any luck will never come true.

I was born under a wanderin' star.
I was born under a wanderin' star.

Do I know where hell is, hell is in hell-o.
Heaven is good-bye forever it's time for me to go.

I was born under a wanderin' star, a wanderin', wanderin' star.

Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry.
Snow can burn your eyes but only people make you cry.
Home is made for comin' from, for dreams of goin' to.
Which with any luck will never come true.

I was born under a wanderin' star.
I was born under a wanderin' star.

When I get to heaven tie me to a tree.
Or I'll begin to roam and soon you'll know where I will be.

I was born under a wanderin' star.
A wanderin', wanderin' star.

Peace and Love always ~ D
Loving the thought of you Sugar… Know that xxx
