Breezin’ Along (With The Breeze)

Words and Music by Haven Gillespie, Seymour Simons and Richard A. Whiting

I have been a rover since I was a child,
No one to love or care for me.
Knocked around all over, kinda grew up wild –
My home’s wherever I may be.
Ain’t no someone yearnin’, wonderin’ where I be;
I’m gone, but no one’s missin’ me;
Ain’t no light a-burnin’ ev’ry night for me;
I’m like a bird that’s flyin’ free.

I’m just breezin’ along with the breeze,
Trailin’ the rails, roamin’ the seas.
Like the birdies that sing in the trees,
Pleasin’ to live, livin’ to please.
The sky is the only roof I have over my head;
And when I’m weary, Mother Nature makes my bed.
I’m just goin’ along as I please,
Breezin’ along with the breeze.

Recorded by Ruth Etting, 1926

    Time carries on and music styles change but like a masterpiece painting or the pyramids class also lasts and Ruth Etting was class.It is now 2011 but i can still enjoy the stars of yesterday singing the songs of the time .Doris day re-created ruth in the film “love me or leave me”and a very accomplished actress /singer she is but did she outsing Ruth?i think not,there was something about the whimsicle manner they put a song over in the 20/30s and fortunatly we have the benefit of cds to remember a not so forgotten time
