Dan Fogelberg – Hickory Grove lyrics

Hickory grove, wait for me
I'm just as poor as a man can be.
Hickory grove, wait for me
I'm just as blind as the other men
That see.

Hickory grove, make the sun
Rise slower I don't have much time.
Hickory grove, watch me run
Down through the years of my prime.

Lady luck, play your hand
I've got a life for you to play with
Hickory grove, you will stand...
I've got a dream that I can stay with.
