Last night I heard the wild goose cry
Wingin' north in a lonely sky
Tried to sleep, but it wern't no use
'Cause I'm a brother to the old wild goose
My woman is kind and true to me
Thinks she loves me, the more fool she
She's gotta learn that it ain't no use
To love the brother to the old wild goose
My heart knows what the wild goose knows
I must go where the wild goose goes
Wild goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest?
The cabin is warm and the snow is deep
I've got a woman who lies asleep
When she wakes at tomorrow's dawn
She'll find, poor critter, that her man is gone
Spring is comin' and the ice will break
And I can't linger for a woman's sake
She'll see a shadow pass overhead
And find a feather beside my bed
