    Default country music

    In the last 3 months I have started to listen to country music and I like it alot more than the crap that is on the radio now.

    I heard a song a few nights ago and I can not for the life of me remember the name. The only words that I can remember is "blow seminole winds"

    Can anyone tell me the name of the song and artist if they know?

    Is this it??

    Artist/Band: Anderson John
    Lyrics for Song: Seminole Wind
    Lyrics for Album: John Anderson - Greatest Hits


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

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

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

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

    Instrumental close.
    To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

    Sad thing about country is that most of the songs and bands aren't country. It's all crossover crap. Big & Rich? You tellin' me that is country? Shania Twain? Ain't been country in years.

    Give me some George Strait, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, and a few other and I am a happy guy.

    Not saying some of the songs aren't good, but they aren't country.

    DaSharkie's rule of country music:

    If you can hear a song on two different stations with different music genres, it isn't country.

    Ahhhhhhh, all better now. Don't even get me started on CMT now though.


    Blues Brothers - Awesome, simply awesome flick. Never seen a better rendition of Rawhide or Stand by Your Man in my life. Even better than Tammy Wynette's original.

    Good ole John Anderson! One of my favorites. He's the one that turned me onto country back in the early 80s.

    I'm with you, Sharkie. Although I like some of the "new" (past 10 years) stuff, there's nothing like the good country. Some of the songs if you were to listen to them outside of a country channel you'd never see how it was considered "country" to begin with. Get's you to scratching your head....

    Give me some John Anderson, Randy Travis, George Jones, Alabama...(must admit I do like most of the Garth/Shania outputs). My stations still stay on the country side, though...can't find any other stations that play anything better.

    most of what passes for country now is bad rip offs of what the Eagles did back in the early 70s, pre Hotel California

    The problem is that very few of these hacks have even 1/10th of the talent the eagles had

    Best time to listen to country is early (before 7am) on saturday & sundays) 'round here its called country gold. Any station that will play Marty Robbins is ok in my book.

    If I'm going to listen to country it will be Johnny Cash or Waylon Jennings. All that Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Big & Rich sounds the same to me...like crap.

    The only thing out there that I can't stand is that crap rap, and most of the alternative.(some is o.k.)

    Country? Love it. Don't care much for B&R (just can't sing, it's horrible....)
    Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, George Straight, the Possum, Brooks and Dunn (Hair and Hat), Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Brad Paisley,Waylon Jennings, the Hag, and sooooo much more.

    Country, soul, rock and roll....It's all good!

    I really liked McGraw when he first came out. I give you welcome to the club & Refried Dreams. But lately I dont particularly care for the "music" that is being put out these days. Seems like its more for gross sales than quality of music.

    LOVE that song! And he's a local boy (well, same state).

    I was raised on country music. REAL country. George & Tammy, the Man in Black, Waylon & Willie, Dolly, Loretta, Conway, Pattsy, list goes on. Never missed an episod of Hee-Haw

    Except for a very few artists (Alan Jackson, LeAnn Womak and a few others), I dont care much for todays country

    Do you know what happens when you play a country record backwards?

    Your truck comes out of a ditch
    You sober up
    And your wife comes back
