GUEST,Joe Lyr Req: A Cold Wind Blows (Alasdair Clayre) (15) Origins: There's a cold wind blows 19 Feb 11

I'm looking for help in tracing the author and remaining verses of this song that I first heard around 1970.

The opening verse went something like this:

'There's a cold wind blows, you cannot see.
Strips the thin leaves from the tree.
Drives the small birds singing, way off to the South.
It'll drive black dust in a young girl's smiling mouth'

It had a very haunting tune.
