Jim Nabors is Gone With the Wind.

"Gone with the Wind" is a classic song of love that is lost, like leaves or smoke that blow away with the wind. It was a #1 hit for Horace Heidt in 1937, the year it was first published, and has since become a standard. The vivid imagery lends itself readily to dramatization.


  • In Season 1 of Sesame Street, Guy Smiley sang the song to a young woman. During the song, a very strong wind blows, making the leaves fly off the tree, causing the woman's house to collapse, and finally ripping Guy's clothes off. This segment first appeared in Episode 0034.
