My heart knows what the wild goose knows
And I must go where the wild goose goes
Wild goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest?

Tonight I heard the wild goose cry
Wingin' his way through the lonely sky
Tried to sleep, but it warn't no use
'Cause I'm a brother to the old wild goose

My heart knows what the wild goose knows
And I must go where the wild goose goes
Wild goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest?

My woman is kind and true to me
She thinks she loves me, but more fool she
She's gotta learn that it ain't no use
To love a brother of the old wild goose

My heart knows what the wild goose knows
And I must go where the wild goose goes
Wild goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest?

Oh, you wild goose

The cabin is warm and the snow lies deep
And I've got a woman who lies asleep
When she wakes at tomorrow's dawn
She'll find, poor soul, that her man is gone

My heart knows what the wild goose knows
And I must go where the wild goose goes
Wild goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest?

Let me fly, let me fly, let me fly away

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
She'll find a feather beside my bed

My heart knows what the wild goose knows
And I must go where the wild goose goes
Wild goose, brother goose, which is best?
A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest?

Wild goose, brother goose
Wild goose, brother goose
Wild goose, brother goose
Wild goose, brother goose
Wild goose, brother goose
Wild goose, brother goose
