Lyrics for the Day – Hickory Wind

This is the song that really got me into “country-rock” as it was described back in the day. I remember playing it on my college AM channel as I was training to be a big Saturday night FM DJ. I just heard the Gillian Welch version and it brought back the memories.

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
