The Bearfort Tower 1932
Jack he cut down his ol’ buddy Blue
Four Winds howl by the lady red
she plays her music in the sheriffs bed

Roll away
My old buddy won’t you keep on rollin’
Roll away
My old buddy won’t you keep on rollin’ on

Who’s the man who burnt Bearfort down?
The Four Winds whisper all across the town
Wildwood flowers in the sheriffs pale
Red eye bottle on his pile of mail

{chorus}

Hickory Fire, red ivory scent
The four winds cool on the clay cement
Wildwood flower floating in the still
From Bearfort Tower Sheriff whistles squeal

{chorus}

From Franklin Mine to the The Bearfort Tower
The four winds carry a wildwood flower
Wildfire blazes from the mountain ridge
You can smell the burning from the Milford Bridge

{chorus}

Wildwood Flowers grow from a broken bone
Jack he’s free to roam alone
Four Winds stale in hollow log
Ol’ Bearfort Tower, is forever gone

{chorus}
