"Seminole Wind" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist John Anderson. It was released in August 1992 as the fourth single and title track from the album of the same name. It peaked at number 2 on the United States Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, and reached number-one on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart. Before its release as a single, it was included on the B-side of the album's second single release, "Straight Tequila Night." Seminole Wind was covered by Donna the Buffalo in 1998, as well as well-known folk artist James Taylor.
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
