Do you know why the trees bend
At the west Texas border?
Do you know why they bend
Sway and twine?
The trees bend because of the wind
 Across that lonesome border
The trees bend because of the wind
 Almost all the time

Have you seen my Caroline 
Up in Amarillo?
Have you seen my Caroline 
The one that I call mine?
Well, if you see my Caroline 
With her hair of yellow 
If you see my Caroline 
Tell her I'm doin' fine

She is to me like the breeze 
That blows from Corpus Christi
She is to me like the breeze 
That blows up from the sea
Now if she is like the breeze 
That blows from Corpus Christi
Then I must be like the trees 
'Cause Caroline blows through me

Do you know why the trees bend
At the west Texas border?
Do you know why they bend
Sway and twine?
The trees bend because of the wind
 Across that lonesome border
The trees bend because of the wind
 Almost all the time
