Subject: Wild Geese - Anne Hills (need lyrics)
From: GUEST,Lin

There is an album by Anne Hills called "The Panic Is On."
I am looking to find out who wrote the song and lyrics to a song called, "Wild Geese."

It actually is part of the song that is "The Water is Wide" and then it goes right into ("Wild Geese")
I am only looking to find out the lyrics to "Wild Geese" (not "The Water is Wide.")

Also if anyone has the chords for this song "Wild Geese" please post.

Many thanks,

one I referred to

(Ian Tyson)

Wild geese flying by, calling on the downwind as they go
No answers they send, and springtime has too many miles to flow
The lone black pine, hillsides all covered with snow.
Why does the wind say you ain't coming back any more?

Was there a time when my dreams were not always of you?
The days ain't so bad, but each night takes so long passing through
Down by the stream, fresh otter tracks in the snow
Why does the wind say you ain't coming back any more?

I've got a mind just to ramble this whole country round
With the fields (hills?) turning green and the frost boiling out from the ground
Drive through the miles of country I've never seen before
Now that the wind says you ain't coming back any more.

To mg:

Yes, that is the one. Thank you for printing out the lyrics.
I didn't know Ian Tyson wrote it. I have only heard the version cover by Anne Hills. I used to have that album at one time but with many moves over the years, I don't have it now so listen to it on Youtube. Not sure the reason it starts with "The Water is Wide" and goes right into "Wild Geese".
