linda ronstadt – wildflowers lyrics

written by dolly parton
© 1986 velvet apple music

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 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

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 mysteries 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
