Lyrics

There's history in his music
Palmetto in his blood
From the hardwoods to the sawgrass
He's hiked the sand and mud
His church is a hammock forest
There's a black hat on his head
His tale, behold
If truth be told
He's Florida born and bred

He came from out of Chipley
With a calloused, but gentle hand
His love for native habitat
Few others understand
The black bear and the panther
Neither foe, but friend
Like sun and rain
Oh Will McLean
We need you once again

Chorus:
Ohh Ohh
Sparks arise
From a fire with its coals aglow
Ohh Ohh
The hawk takes flight
To where we do not know

The swamp singers still remember
The glade, it won't forget
The Seminoles speak about him
He's gone, but not dead yet
The winds on Okeechobee
Now whisper out his name
Like sun and rain
Oh Will McLean
We need you once again

(chorus)

There's history in his music
Palmetto in his blood
From the hardwoods to the sawgrass
He's hiked the sand and mud
His church is a hammock forest
There's a black hat on his head
His tale, behold
If truth be told
He's Florida born and bred
His tale, behold
The fire's cold
But he's Florida born and bred
