Because of the Wind (LP Version)

Because of the Wind (LP Version)

Jimmie Dale Gilmore

Do you know why the trees bend
At the West Texas border?
Do you know why they bend,
And sway and twine?
The trees bend because of the wind
Along that lonesome border.
The trees bend because of the wind
All along the line.

Have you seen my Caroleen
Up in Amarillo?
Have you seen my Caroleen
The one that I call mine?
Well, if you see my Caroleen
With her hair of yellow
If you see my Caroleen
Tell her I'm doin' fine.

She is to me just like the breeze
That blows from Corpus Christi.
She is to me just like the breeze
That blows up from the sea.
Well, if she is like the breeze
That blows from Corpus Christi
Then I must be like the trees,
Cause Caroleen blows through me.

Do you know why the trees bend
At the West Texas border?
Do you know why they bend,
And sway and twine?
The trees bend because of the wind
Along that lonesome border.
The trees bend because of the wind
Almost all the time.

The trees bend because of the wind
All along the line.
