As recorded by FRANKIE LAINE (original Mercury Records recording): My heart knows what the wild goose knows And I must go where the wild goose goes Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest Tonight I heard the wild goose cry Wingin' north in the lonely sky I tried to sleep, it wern't no use 'Cause I am a brother to the old wild goose (My heart knows what the wild goose knows) (And I must go where the wild goose goes) (Wild goose, brother goose, which is best) (A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest) My woman was kind and true to me She thinks she loves me, the more fool she She's gotta learn that ain't no use To love the brother of the old wild goose (My heart knows what the wild goose knows) (And I must go where the wild goose goes) (Wild goose, brother goose, which is best) (A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest) (Oh, you wild goose) The cabin is warm and the snow is deep And I've got a woman who lies asleep When she wakes up tomorrow's dawn She'll find, poor critter, that her man is gone My heart knows what the wild goose knows And I must go where the wild goose goes Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest Let me fly, let me fly, let me fly away Spring is comin' and the ice will break And I can't linger for a woman's sake She'll see a shadow pass overhead She'll find a feather beside my bed (My heart knows what the wild goose knows) (And I must go where the wild goose goes) Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest (Wild goose, wild goose, wild goose, wild goose) (Wild goose, wild goose...............FADE) ********** As recorded by FRANKIE LAINE (later Columbia Records recording): (Aah-ahh-ahh-aah-aah-aaaaahhhhhhh) (Aah-ahh-ahh-aah-aah-aaaaahhhhhhh) My heart knows what the wild goose knows And I must go where the wild goose goes Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' fool or a heart at rest Tonight I heard the wild goose cry Wingin' north in the lonely sky Tried to sleep, it wern't no use 'Cause I am a brother to the old wild goose (Oh, my heart knows what the wild goose knows) (And I must go where the wild goose goes) Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' fool or a heart at rest My woman was kind and true to me She thinks she loves me, the more fool she She's gotta learn that ain't no use To love a brother of the old wild goose (Oh, my heart knows what the wild goose knows) (And I must go where the wild goose goes) Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' fool or a heart at rest (Aah-ahh-ahh-aah-aah-aaaaahhhhhhh) The cabin is warm and the snow is deep And I got a woman who lies asleep She'll wake up tomorrow's dawn And find, poor critter, that her man is gone (Oh, my heart knows what the wild goose knows) (And I must go where the wild goose goes) (Wild goose, brother goose, which is best) (A wanderin' fool or a heart at rest) Let me fly, let me fly, let me fly away Spring is comin' and the ice will break And I can't linger for a woman's sake She'll see a shadow pass overhead And she'll find a feather beside her bed (Oh, my heart knows what the wild goose knows) (And I must go where the wild goose goes) Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' fool or a heart at rest (Aah-ahh-ahh-aah-aah-aaaaahhhhhhh) (Aah-ahh-ahh-aah-aah-aaaaahhhhhhh) (Aah-ahh-ahh-aah-aah.........FADE) ********** As recorded by TENNESSEE ERNIE FORD: Tonight I heard the wild goose cry Wingin' north in the lonely sky Tried to sleep but it ain't no use 'Cause I am the brother to the old wild goose My heart knows what the wild goose knows And I must go where the wild goose goes Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest The cabin is warm and the snow is deep And I got a woman, she lies asleep When she wakes at tomorrow's dawn She'll find, poor critter, that her man is gone My heart knows what the wild goose knows And I must go where the wild goose goes Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest My woman was kind and true to me Thinks she loves me, the more fool she She gotta learn that it ain't no use To love the brother to the old wild goose My heart knows what the wild goose knows And I must go where the wild goose goes Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest Spring is comin' and the ice will break And I can't linger for a woman's sake She'll see a shadow pass overhead She'll find a feather beside my bed My heart knows what the wild goose knows And I must go where the wild goose goes Wild goose, brother goose, which is best A wanderin' foot or a heart at rest Wild Goose!
