Verse 1:
Em              G
Ever since the days of old,
D                     A
Men would search for wealth untold.
Em                     G
They'd dig for silver and for gold,
    D                     A
And leave the empty holes.
    Em                     G
And way down south in the Everglades,
           D                         A
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
Em                       G
The eagles fly and the otters play,
         D                   A
In the land of the Seminole.


Chorus:
Em              G
So blow, blow Seminole wind,
D                             A
Blow like you're never gonna blow again.
Em                         G
I'm calling to you like a long lost friend,
    D               A
But I know who you are.
     Em                    G
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
D                  A
All the way up to Micanopy.
Em                            G
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
D                       A
The alligators and the gar.

Break: Em  G  D  A  (x 2)

Verse 2:
Em                 G
Progress came and took its toll,
     D              A
And in the name of flood control,
Em                              G
They made their plans and they drained the land,
          D                   A
Now the glades are going dry.
        Em                  G
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
   D             A
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
Em                      G
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
   D          A
Of Osceola cry.

Chorus

Instrumental / Outro : Em  G  D  A   (x5)  Em

( here i usually play and awesome solo or something but you can just play the intro if

I don't suppose you have a recording of this online , maybe youtube or soundcloud? I'd love to hear this with your solo. I can't play it but I'd like to hear what it sounds like when it's played right.

I want to post or [tab]
