Words & Music: A.L. Owens/ Solberg
You're the one who beckoned the wind
And fanned the flame when our love began
So don't pretend you don't know me
Our names are carved on you, singing tree

Oh singing tree
Sing to me
Call your friend
The roving wind
Maybe he can find my love
And bring her back, singing tree

Your leaves have turned from green to blue
Sometimes I think you loved her too
But since she left and our love died
You stand petrified, singing tree

Oh sing to me
Singing tree
Call your friend
The roving wind
Maybe he can find my love
And bring her back, singing tree

Oh sing to me
Singing tree
Call your friend
The roving wind
Maybe he can find my love

I really enjoy this song, while the duet aspect combined with the backing singers adds to the whole experience. Granted it is no trendsetter but that does not anyway lessen the impact and appreciation for this listener.

Elvis sounds again superb on this one. He turns this mediocre song into a gem.

Compared to the Clambake songs, its like Beethoven. Compared to the 1967 pop scene, its out of touch and quite boring.

An interesting track where Elvis duets with himself. Included on the LP "Clambake" as a bonus song and while not one of the best songs from his recording session in September of '67, it is still very good.

Never liked this song. Reminds me of some of the schlock that Elvis would later record in the 70's.
