Verse 1:
B
Through the chill of winter

Running across a frozen lake

Hunters hard right on his trail

All odds are against him
AE
With a family to provide for
AB
But one thing he must keep alive
E A
Will the wolf survive?
E
Will the wolf survive?


Verse 2:
B
Drifting by the roadside

Climbs a strong and aging face

Wants to make some honest pay

Losing to the rainstorm
A E
He's got two strong legs to guide him
AB
Two strong arms keep him alive
E
Will the wolf survive?


Bridge:
E AE
Standing in the pouring rain
AE
All alone in a world that's changed
A D A
Running scared now forced to hide
E AE
In a land where he once stood with pride
B A
But he'll find his way by the morning light


Verse 3:
B
Sounds across the nation

Coming from your hearts and minds

Battered drums and old guitars

Singing songs of passion
A E
It's the truth that they all look for
A B
Something they must keep alive
E A
Will the wolf survive?
E A
Will the wolf survive?

B
Will the wolf survive?
