Am    E     Am        E
On a wagon bound for market
Am          Dm         Am      E
There's a calf with a mornful eye
Am       E      Am      E
High above him      a swallow
Am       Dm       Am     E  Am
Winging swiftly through the sky

Chorus
G                 C        Am
How the winds are laughing
G                   C    Am
They laugh with all their might
G                    C     E   Am
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
E                Am
and half the summers night

"Stop complaining" said the farmer
"Who told you a calf to be?
Why don't you have wings to fly with,
Like that swallow so proud and free?"

Chorus
G                 C        Am
How the winds are laughing
G                   C    Am
They laugh with all their might
G                    C     E   Am
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
E                Am
and half the summers night

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
But whoever treasures freedom
like that swallow has learned to fly

Chorus
G                 C        Am
How the winds are laughing
G                   C    Am
They laugh with all their might
G                    C     E   Am
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
E                Am
and half the summers night
