"Because of the Wind" as written by and Joe Ely....
Do you know why the trees bend
At the west Texas border?
Do you know why they bend
Sway and twine?
The trees bend because of the wind
Across that lonesome border
The trees bend because of the wind
Almost all the time

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

She is to me like the breeze
That blows from Corpus Christi
She is to me like the breeze
That blows up from the sea
Now if she is like the breeze
That blows from Corpus Christi
Then I must be like the trees
'Cause Caroline blows through me

Do you know why the trees bend
At the west Texas border?
Do you know why they bend
Sway and twine?
The trees bend because of the wind
Across that lonesome border
The trees bend because of the wind
Almost all the time
