THE WILD GEESE RETURN
(DADGAD) © Bob Wright


High in the northern sky
banking into the wind
the wild geese return again

I remember mornings
when we’d walk amongst the trees
strolling hand in hand along
a trail of golden leaves... when

High in the northern sky
banking into the wind
the wild geese return again

other times we’d simply lie
together side by side
and watch the boats below us
in the early morning light

High in the northern sky
banking into the wind
the wild geese return again

now each morning I go out
to walk the hills alone
I watch the sky and sit beside
your name upon a stone... then

High in the northern sky
banking into the wind
the wild geese return again
