Hickory Wind
The Byrds Lyrics


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

In a far away city, with a far away feel
But it makes me feel better each time it begins

My favourite Gram Parsons song. I have sung this many times (with no-one listening!) and might give it a go if I was ever asked to perform it at a karaoke. Goes very deep.

Lucky Stoller

Go for it!

Richard Craig

This is REAL, GOOD country. Unlike the drivel the Nashville establishment(which is as a contemptible group of people as ever there was) has pushed, sanctioned and otherwise foisted on the people.

Bob Lynch

Well said. Nashville,Rhinestone Cowboy-junk

Can you imagine that when the Byrds did appear at the Grand Ol' Opry during the 60's they were dismissed as "Hippies"?!
