To the Wild Country Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Country Roads-Very Best Of John (1999)

This song appears on five albums, and was first released on the I Want To Live Album, and has also been recorded on the Earth Songs, Country Classics, The Very Best of John Denver (Single CD) and The John Denver Collection - Rocky Mountain High Albums.


There are times I fear I lose myself
I dont know who I am
I get caught up in the struggle and the strain
With my back against a stonewall
My finger in the dam
Losin strength and goin down again

And I take a look around me
My eyes cant find the sun
Theres nothing wild as far as I can see
Then my heart turns to Alaska
And freedom on the run
I can hear her spirit callin me

To the mountains, I can rest there
To the rivers, I will be strong
To the forest, Ill find peace there
To the wild country, where I belong

Oh, I know some times I worry
On worldly ways and means
And I can see the future killing me
On a misbegotten highway
Of prophecies and dreams
A road to nowhere and eternity

And I know its just changes
Yes, and mankind marchin on
I know we cant live in yesterday
But compared to what were losin
And what it means to me
Id give my life and throw the rest away

To the mountains, I can rest there
To the rivers, I will be strong
To the forest, Ill find peace there
To the wild country, where I belong
To the wild country, where I belong

I live in the mountains on top of a ridge, I watch red tail hawks fly every day. This song is the story of my life..

I cannot hardly listen to this without crying. It saddens me to see the greed and sprawl without a care of what is being destroyed.
