Emmylou Harris — Wildflowers lyrics

The hills were alive with wildflowers and I
Was as wild even wilder than they
For at least I could run they just died in the sun
And I refused to just wither in place
Just a wild mountain rose needing freedom to grow
So I ran fearing not where I'd go
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
Wildflowers don't care where they grow

And the flowers I knew in the fields where I grew
Were content to be lost in the crowd
They were common and close I had no room for growth
And I wanted so much to branch out
So I uprooted myself from my home ground and left
Took my dreams and I took to the road
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
Wildflowers don't care where they grow

[ accoustic guitar ]

I grew up fast and wild and I never felt right
In a garden so different from me
I just never belonged I just longed to be gone
So the garden one day set me free
I hitched a ride with the wind and since he was my friend
I just let him decide where we'd go
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
Wildflowers don't care where they grow

Just a wild rambling rose seeking mist'ries untold
No regret for the path that I chose
When a flower grows wild it can always survive
Wildflowers don't care where they grow
Mhm hm hm mhm... Mhm hm hm mhm...
Wildflowers don't care where they grow
