"Free The Wind" lyrics - THE FLATLANDERS

"Free The Wind"

You move the wind, you move the water
You move the wild in all that's free
You move the child, you move the mountain
You move the song inside of me


The mountain stands against the water
The ocean breaks against the shore
Ten thousand years times ten thousand
The prideful mountain stands no more

From wanting happiness for others
Comes all the joy the world contains
From wanting pleasure for yourself
Comes only sorrow, only pain


You free the wind, you free the water
You free the wild in all you see
You free the child, you free the mountain
You free the song inside of me
Free the wind
