G Am C D G
1) There was a time, so the legend goes,
G Am C D
When the wolf ran free, went where he chose,
Game was plenty on the hunting ground,
C D G
And he fit right in, Life's circle went around.
2) There was a song, where it's silent now,
Used to sing with the wind, 'twas the grey wolf's howl
And with what passion that song was filled,
It'd echo long through these ageless hills.
G C G
Chorus: There's a lone wolf howlin', On the ridgeline
Am C D
Callin' for her brothers, Not a one in sight,
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
What will it take, or is her song in vain?
Am D G
Will the big wolf's track pass this way again?
3) There was a sight few men have caught,
Of the lessons learned and the wisdom taught,
Of a playful romp with a pup in tow,
Oer a silent statue all curled in the snow.
4) There was a time, I would have liked to have known,
When the wolf ran free, o'er his rightful home,
But the loping grey is seen no more,
And you can't hear his howl for the highway's roar.
