Rod Stewart: Mandolin Wind Meaning

Mandolin Wind Lyrics

When the rain came I thought you'd leave
'cause I knew how much you loved the sun
But you chose to stay, stay and keep me warm
through the darkest nights I've ever known
If the mandolin wind couldn't change a thing
then I know I love ya

Oh the...

    Mandolin Wind struck a chord with me the moment I heard it some forty years ago and today is in my top five songs ever. It's a simple and very British folk ballad that romanticizes the harsh life of a celtic existence and true love. The British/European fascination with the American west has always fascinated me, this is clearly stated in the line "buffalo died in the frozen fields you know." British, Irish, Norwegian Swedes, the lot… are all exposed to the harsh rigors of northern winters, craving the sun, wishing for better times but making the best of hard times. Mandolin Wind reflects perfectly the beauty and optimism of harsh winters, wishing for better times and the endurance of true love.
