There are times I fear I lose myself I don't know who I am
I get caught up in the struggle and the strain
With my back against a stonewall my finger in the dam
Losin' strength and goin' down again

When I take a look around me my eyes can't find the sun
There's nothing wild as far as I can see
Then my heart turns to Alaska and freedom on the run
I can hear her spirit callin' me

To the mountains, I can rest there
To the rivers, I will be strong
To the forest, I'll find peace there
To the wild country, where I belong

Oh, I know some times I worry on worldly ways and means
And I can see the future killing me
On a misbegotten highway of prophecies and dreams
A road to nowhere and eternity

And I know it's just changes yes, and mankind marchin' on
I know we can't live in yesterday
But compared to what we're losin' and what it means to me
I'd give my life and throw the rest away

To the mountains, I can rest there
To the rivers, I will be strong
To the forest, I'll find peace there
To the wild country, I belong
To the wild country, where I belong
