DT Lyrics:





Subject: ...what the Wild Goose Knows..
From: Uncle Jaque
Date: 21 Dec 00 - 12:14 AM

During a recent Paltalk I heard a song that brought back a lot of memories from my youth the '60s; I tried the DB without success to refresh memory as to the lyrics.

About all I recall is the chorus, which goes something like:

"My heart knows what the wild goose knows;
And I must go where the Wild Goose goes.
Wild Goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wandering soul or a heart at rest?

I know somebody out there has 'em; the fellow who sang it in the song circle! Verses, and, if possible, chord progressions would be appreciated.

Bless you, Sorcha!

I'm going to shut down and catch a few Zs before work later this morning (my it is late!). Will be looking fwd. to your next response. If you could link to a website with the lyrics and save yourself typing 'em in that would be fine.

This song came out when I was roaming the White Mts. of Northern NH, but knowing that I was soon off to the War with a broken heart - torn in several directions by a lost love, the ending of a tormented childhood, and a strong sense of migration instinct. It was the season for leaving, and when the geese went over that year I could hear in their cry my calling. That was over 30 years ago.

Thanks!

This put me to thinking about some of the songs of my youth..no Matt, not Greensleeves!
Remember the radio program, YOUR HIT PARADE? some of the ones I think of fondly are, Wild Goose, In My adobe Hiecenda, Mule Train, Wayward Wind, Dark Moon etc. Today, I listened to Ed Tricketts new tape, Echos on the evening tide, and, one of the cuts is called Where in the world have the old songs gone? ...there is a line that just gets to me..."I cast my manhood down in a flood of tears and weep like a child for the past.. It is a wonderful tape, I recommend it most highly.

Wow, Kendall; "Restless Wind" (The ________[?] Sisters?); I used to sing that one until I was hoarse! I think we still have the well-worn 45RPM disc of it up in the attic someplace. Once in a rare while I will hear it on WLAM - that's about the only station that plays that sort of thing anymore. Most of the popular / rock & roll "Oldies" which I find annoying today, I also disliked back when they were top - 40 "Newies"! Abandoning all attempts at being "accepted" by the majority of my peers I listened, whrenever I could, to Kingston Trio, PP&M, Clancy Bros. and the like. And I was SOOO in LOVE with "Joannie" BAEZ... up until she quit singing and started whining ("protest" songs) exclusively, that is.

What a catharsis it was riding my old Benelli 250CC hell-bent for leather through the NH mountains bellowing "Donna Donna" ("The Winds Are Laughing") at the top of my adolecent lungs into the slipstream!

I sense another thread coming, here; "Songs that take You Back". Whattaya say, Old Compadres (some of whom have been around a fair bit longer than I have)?
