The Wild Ones Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I'm looking for somebody
Who might have come this way
Could have been an hour ago
Or maybe yesterday

She's pretty as a flower
And shining as a star
I never thought she'd ever come so far

I'm tryin' to find a woman
Friendly as can be
She's never met a stranger
I'm sure you would agree

And if you got to talkin'
She probably made you laugh
Here she is in this photograph

We were the wild ones
The young guns
Restless as the wind

We were the wild ones
Now I run and when I'm done
The wild ones will run again

I went on the road alone
And left her there behind
I was thinkin' of myself
She said, she didn't mind

But love is like a songbird
And every song she sings
You'll hear a sweet reminder of her wings

We were the wild ones
The young guns
Restless as the wind

We were the wild ones
Now I run and when I'm done
The wild ones will run again

Maybe she's across the street
Or half a world away
I've got to find her
If only just to say

We were the wild ones
The young guns
Restless as the wind

We were the wild ones
Now I run and when I'm done
The wild ones will run again

We're the wild ones
We're the wild ones
