HICKORY WIND
Gram Parsons


In South Carolina there are many tall pines

I remember the oak tree that we used to climb

But now when I'm lonesome, I always pretend

That I'm getting the feel of hickory wind


I started out younger at most everything

All the riches and pleasures, what else could life bring?

But it makes me feel better each time it begins

Callin' me home, hickory wind


It's hard way to find out that trouble is real

In a far away city, with a far away feel

But it makes me feel better each time it begins

Callin' me home, hickory wind


Keeps callin' me home, hickory wind
