Because Of The Wind.
Joe Ely.
Album: Honky Tonk Maquerade.
Capo 3.

Intro: Gm C7

F
Do you know why the trees bend, 
       Dm   Bb    F
At the West Texas border? 
F
Do you know why they bend, 
Gm       C
Sway and twine? 
    F
The trees bend because of the wind,
Dm          Bb       F
Across that lonesome border,
F              Dm
The trees bend because of the wind,
Gm     C       F
Almost all the time. 

F                          Dm    Bb F
Have you seen my Caroleen, Up in Amarillo,
F                          Gm             Dm   C
Have you seen my Caroleen, The one that I call mine, 
F                             Dm       Bb6     F/C
Well, if you see my Caroleen, With her hair of yellow, 
F             Dm7 Dm    Gm           C     F
If you see my Caroleen, Tell her I'm doing fine. 

Break: F Dm Bb F Gm7 C F Dm Bb F/C Dm Gm C F/C

F                                  Dm         Bb     F
She is to me like the breeze, That blows from Corpus Christi, 
F                                  Gm                C
She is to me like the breeze, That blows up from the sea, 
    F/C                             Dm         Bb     F
Now if she is like the breeze, That blows from Corpus Christi, 
F              Dm7      Dm           Gm       C             F/C
Then I must be like the trees, Cause Caroleen blows through me. 

F                                      Dm   Bb    F/C
Do you know why the trees bend, At the West Texas border? 
F                          Gm       C     C7
Do you know why they bend, Sway and twine? 
    F/C
The trees bend because of the wind, 
Dm          Bb       F/C
Across that lonesome border, 
F              Dm7                  Gm     C       F
The trees bend because of the wind, Almost all the time,
F              Dm7                  Gm     C       F
The trees bend because of the wind, Almost all the time.
