Susan Ashton – Call Of The Wild lyrics

He was 21 when he got married
His son was born when he was 23
He watched his reckless days of youth
Turn to years of responsibility.

His world became routine and he got restless
The family ties that bind just tied him down
He felt his life was passing him by
Felt his dreams were crashing to the ground.

And that grass was looking greener
Beyond the limits of that simple town.

Cause he wanted a life of adventure
So he left behind a wife and a child
They begged him to stay
But he threw it all away
And he answered the call of the wild.

He lived it up out there in Arizona
He got rowdy down in Tennessee
Making up for lost time
Crossing the line now that he was free
But when the dust finally settled
He saw just how alone a man can be.

But he wanted a life of adventure
So he left behind a wife and a child
But the freedom he loved
He was now a prisoner of
Since he answered the call of the wild.

And somewhere in the darkness
He began to see the light
He wondered what his chances might be
To make things right so.

He went running back to where he came from
In hopes he'd be received like the prodigal son
But in the place he once called home
He found it was no longer home to anyone
And in a house cold and empty
Through tears he cried, "My God what have I done?"

But he wanted a life of adventure
So he left behind a wife and a child
They begged him to stay
But he threw it all away
And he answered the call of the wild.

Yeah, he answered the call of the wild...
