 Definition A popular song written by Bob Dylan and covered by Sam Cooke and Peter, Paul and Mary. [d] [e]

I was thinking Kansas had the biggest hit with this song, or some similar group. I'll need to check into it. David E. Volk 17:06, 6 May 2008 (CDT)

You are thinking of Dust in the Wind. --Todd Coles 17:11, 6 May 2008 (CDT)
Yes, it's a good song, too. Oh, great, now it's going to be going round in my head all day. Aleta Curry 17:22, 6 May 2008 (CDT)

Some questions for Those Who Know

OK, now I'm very curious. Which "old Negro Spiritual" is it based on? (And isn't the generally-accepted musicological term now "African-American Spiritual"?) Who used it as a green-energy anthem? Who used it as an allegory of the Holy Spirit? As the old ad for the tabloid newspaper used to say: Inquiring minds want to know! Bruce M.Tindall 01:25, 8 July 2008 (CDT)
