Lyrics
WILD GEESE

I love you my loving darling
Forgive me for what I’ve done
I’ve done wrong once to often
Now I’ve lost what I had found

I lost the name I was given
Paid the price for my crime
Now I’m just another number
Doing ten in a twelve by nine

Take my heart now it’s broken
Lost my sweetheart divine
It was my one, my one and only temptation
I had water but I wanted wine

I close my eyes and we’re together
And I can taste the morning dew
I hear bird’s call and responding
Can you hear me calling you?

I remember late one evening
As the sky was growing dark
I saw wild geese on the river
Taking flight and heading north

Take my heart now it’s broken
Lost my sweetheart divine
It was my one, my one and only temptation
I had water but I wanted wine

What a great cut.
Nice lyrics and a great hook line with the water and wine. Keeps the
bluegrass tradition going. First class song all the way. I would feel
comfortable with a repeat of the chorus at the end but it is not really
needed. Good stuff!
