      About "To The Wild Country"

      Lyrics for John Denver - "To The Wild Country"

      There are times I fear I lose myself
      I don't know who I am
      I get caught up in the struggle and the strain
      With my back against a stonewall
      My finger in the dam
      Losing strength and going down again

      And I take a look around me
      My eyes can't find the sun
      There's nothing wild as far as I can see
      Then my heart turns to Alaska
      And freedom on the run
      I can hear her spirit calling me

      [Chorus]
      To the mountains, I can rest there
      To the rivers, I will be strong
      To the forest, I'll find peace there
      To the wild country, where I belong

      Oh, I know some times I worry
      On worldly ways and means
      And I can see the future killing me
      On a misbegotten highway
      Of prophecies and dreams
      A road to nowhere and eternity

      And I know it's just changes
      Yes, and mankind marching on
      I know we can't live in yesterday
      But compared to what we're losing
      And what it means to me
      I'd give my life and throw the rest away

      [Chorus]
