hickory wind lyrics – joan baez

in south carolina
there are many tall pines
i remember the oak tree
that we used to climb
but it makes me feel better
each time it begins
callin’ me home
hickory wind
i started out younger
at most everything
all the riches and pleasures
what else could life bring
but now when i’m lonesome
i always pretend
that i’m gettin’ the feel of
hickory wind
it’s a 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
