Seminole Wind

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 waves
The eagles fly and the otters play
In the land of the Seminole

Refrain:
So blow, blow Seminole wind
Blow like you're never gonna blow again
I'm callin' 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 alligator 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 goin' dry
And the last time I walked in the swamp
I stood up on a cyprus stump
I listened close and I heard the ghost
Of Oseola cry

Refrain

    I have had many requests to do a lesson for the fiddle break on John Anderson’s “Seminole Wind.”

    Thanks John. I’ve been learning this one. I plan on at some point recording me playing guitar, singing and playing the fiddle on this song. Always loved it.

     

    I do have one question and it has to do with vibrato. Normally I don’t try to do them. But on this song I’d like to. Can you explain how you’re using the vibrato. Or how you do it?

    Love the video. But you could you also do the fiddle break in between verses.

    The break between verses is the same as the break after the intro!

    No wait, I see now… The break after the verses is the same as the intro but there is a different break between the verses. Somehow I missed that break at 1:50! Whoops! OK I’ll get that lesson up tomorrow.
