Seminole Wind

In the style of

John Anderson

Lyrics

ever since
the days of old
men would search
for wealth untold

they'd dig for silver
and for gold
and leave
the empty holes

and way down south
in the everglades
where the black
water rolls
and the sawgrass
waves

the eagles fly
and the otters play
in the land
of the seminole

so blow blow
seminole wind
blow like you're
never gonna
blow again

i'm callin' to you like
a long lost friend
but i know
who you are

and blow blow
from the okeechobee
all the way up
to micanoppee
blow across the home
of the seminole
the alligators
and the gull

progress came
and took its toll
and in the name
of flood control

they made their plans
and they drained
the land
now the glades
are goin' dry

and the last time
i walked in the swamp
i sat upon
a cypress stump
i listened close
and i heard the ghost
of osceola cry

so blow blow
seminole wind
blow like you're
never gonna
blow again

i'm callin' to you like
a long lost friend
but i know
who you are

and blow blow
from the okeechobee
all the way up
to micanoppee
blow across the home
of the seminole
the alligators
and the gull
