Cold Blows The Wind

Album: Children's Favourites (1907)
  • "Cold Blows The Wind" is an alternative name for "The Unquiet Grave"; like most traditional songs, there are variations of the lyrics and melody, and in this case, the title too. Extensive documentation on the song can be found in Volume II of The Traditional Tunes Of The Child Ballads With Their Texts, according to the Extant Records of Great Britain and America, by Bertrand Harris Bronson, which was published by Princeton University Press in 1962. >>
