The Wild Flowers

This song is by Cathie Ryan.

'Twas the wild flowers I preferred

Who owed nothing to nobody

But blossomed in the ditches

And made their own way in the world

'Twas the wild flowers I admired

Who never done nothing to you

But driven from the garden

Sang their own songs in the spring

You can have your lily, you can have your rose

That were taken and broken and bred by men

They were grafted and lamed

Twisted and tamed

But the wild flowers I enjoyed

They had nothing to do with you

They flowered by the roadside

And wore their own colors in the sun

That were there before you, will be there after you

That will out, that will out like your own true nature

You can try, you can try

That you will never defeat

The wild flowers I enjoyed

They had nothing to do with you

Banished from the garden

They made their own way in the world

They sang their own songs in the spring

And wore their own colors in the sun
