Wildflower Lyrics

Listen we would like to
We would like to do for you a real pretty song
That was done by a group of people
‘But the latter part of 1972, early part of ’73
Tune simply entitled “Wildflower”
Now the first time we heard this song
It sounded like a
Well, to tell the truth it sounded like a white guy
Tryin’ to do a black thing, huh
But we come to find out later
That it was a white, a black guy
Tryin’ to do a white thing, you know what I’m sayin’
And so we, we got it together
And we did our own version of it
And we would like to lay it on you
We think it’s very pretty
And for those of you who are hearin’ it for the first time
We’d like for you to sit back and enjoy
Those of you who heard it before
We’d like for you to scream like hell if you

Oh...oh...oh...
Oh...yeah...
Mmm

What a song, what a song to sing
And I’m singin’ my song, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Sing a song

Yeah, yeah, yeah

She faced the hardest times you would imagine
And many times her eyes fought back the tears, yeah, yeah
And when her youthful world was about to fall in

Each time her slender shoulders
Fought the weight of all her fears
And a sorrow no one hear
Still rings in midnight silence in her ear

Let her cry for she’s a lady
Let her dream, she’s a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She’s a free and gentle flower growin’ wild

And if by chance I should hold her (Hold her)
Let me, let me hold her for a little while
And if I had but one possession
I would take her from the garden to be mine, oh...oh...yeah...yeah

Be careful how you touch her for she night awaken
And sleep is the only freedom that the little girl knows
And when you walk into your eyes, you won’t believe

The way she’s always payin’
For a debt she never, never owed
And the silent wind still blows
But only she can hear, so she goes

Let her cry for she’s a lady
Let her dream, she is a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She’s a free and gentle flower growin’ wild

Let her cry, cry for she’s a lady
Let her dream and dream and dream and dream, she’s a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She’s a free and gentle flower growin’ wild

She’s, she’s
She’s a free and gentle flower, yeah, yeah
I’mma tell the world about my wildflower, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Growin’, gowin’, growin’, yeah, yeah
Hoo...hoo...ooh...ooh...hoo...hoo...ooh...yeah, yeah
Growin’, gowin’, growin’, yeah
Growin’ wild

196
She’s a flower growin’, growin’ wild
She’s a flower growin’, growin’ wild
She’s a flower growin’, growin’ wild
She’s a flower growin’ wild

Wild, wild, la-la, growin’ wild
Wild, wild, la-la, growin’ wild
Wild, wild, la-la, growin’ wild
Wild, wild, la-la, growin’ wild
