    A crash on the highway flew the car to a field. Turn, turn, turn again. There was four persons killed and he was at the wheel. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. But I knew him as good as I’m knowin’ myself. Turn, turn, turn again. And he wouldn’t harm a life that belonged to someone else. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind... -- Damn. This song makes me WEEP.

    I walked down the hallway and I heard his door slam. Turn, turn, turn again. I walked down the courthouse stairs and I did not understand. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. And I played my guitar through the night to the day. Turn, turn, turn again. And the only tune my guitar could play was, “Oh the Cruel Rain and the Wind”.

    too beautiful, so innocent... Bob Dylan is the best, but the Arlo Guthrie's is wonderful too

    Beautiful song. Make sure to check Fairport Convention's 1969 cover, if you still haven't.
