1) There's a place that I know, up in Idaho, where the
wild winds still singin' free,
C Em F G
Over the heights of the Lemhi Range, And you know it
was just meant to be.
Where the peaks all stand proud, seem to hold up the
And the wind stings your face and waters your eye,
Em F G G7
You can set yourself free if you try by and by, With
C G F C F G
Chorus: Don't turn your back on the wild wind, It's a
gift that's so precious and rare,
Em F G C
Don't turn your back on the wild wind, With a prayer it
will always be there.
2) Mountains are more than just piles of stone,
They're alive with a heart of their own,
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net]
And the creatures who roam there, and live there and
This, they all seem to know.
Oh it starts like the thunder, a faint distant roll,
But it hits like the lightning when the wind starts to
And it touches you deep , its the wild in your soul,
It's the windsong.
3) I come here searchin' for my share of dreams,
Lookin' for songs on the way,
And the tunes that I heard, were all sung without words
But the wildwind sure had its say.
I heard the coyotes question, and the elks answered
The bluebirds sing to the water's sweet fall
And the Earth sang her blessing to each one and all,
With her windsong.
