Whispering Pines

artist: johnny horton 1960

by: johnny horton
songwriter: Howard Hausey

The snowflakes fall it's winter's call
And time just seems to fly
Is it the lonely-ness in me
That makes me wanna cry

My heart is sad like a mourning dove
That's lost it's mate in flight
Hear the cooing of his lonely heart
Through the stillness of the night

Whispering Pines, Whispering Pines,
tell me is it so
Whispering Pines, Whispering Pines,
you're the one who knows
My darlings gone, oh she's gone and
I need your sympathy
Whispering Pines
Send my baby back to me

See that squirrel up in the tree
His mate there on the ground
Hear their barking call of love
From the happiness they've found

Is my love still my love
Oh this I've gotta know
Send a message by the wind
Because I love her so

Repeat chorus
