You can instantly see why Frank Sinatra earned the name “Old Blue Eyes” from the video still below with the remastered love song “The Summer Wind” which is “Provided to YouTube by Universal Music Group Summer – by Frank Sinatra.”
The Sinatra song is a ballad, as were so many others by “old blue eyes.” It tells a story that will likely get many recalling their own ‘summer winds.’
LyricFind provides these words and credit for Sinatra’s “The Summer Wind” as follows.
The summer wind came blowin’ in from across the sea
It lingered there, to touch your hair and walk with me
All summer long we sang a song and then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind
Like painted kites, those days and nights they went flyin’ by
The world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky
Then softer than a piper man, one day it called to you
I lost you, I lost you to the summer wind
The autumn wind, and the winter winds they have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days, they go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind
The summer wind
Warm summer wind
The summer wind
