Story

I took a hand drum class at Moab Folk Camp and came home thinking about a song that could use it.  Ken was messing around with this beautiful guitar lick, and voila...put the two together.  It just seems to be a song about me and my love for being in the wild.

Lyrics

Daughter of the Wilderness

I am the daughter of the winter wind

I am the daughter of the sky

I am the daughter of the wilderness

Where the clear mountain lake reflects the stars of the night


Spirits of mothers from a thousand years

Gently guide me from within

Through all the snowflakes in a winter storm

To a place near their hearts where my journey begins

         When clouds and fog seem to settle in

         Barely feel my feet on the ground

         It’s from this place that my search begins

         Walking through my dreams without a sound

 

         I’ll fly with eagles soaring on the wind

         I’ll run with coyotes through the trees

         Dangle my feet in a sparkling brook

         Here's where I’ll stay till my spirit comes free

 

I am the daughter of the winter wind

I am the daughter of the sky

I am the daughter of the wilderness

Where the clear mountain lake reflects the stars of the night
