Hickory Wind
Composer: Gram Parson / Bob Buchanan

Hickory Wind was performed by Phil Lesh & Friends in 2012 when the group played all the songs from the Gram Parsons album Grievous Angel.

Most sources credit Parsons and Buchanan, a bandmate of Parsons in the International Submarine Band, as the writers of Hickory Wind. However it is possible that the song was written by Sylvia Sammons in 1962 or 1963. See http://www.folklinks.com for more details.
