The Cariboo's calling
And I must respond.
Just like a wild thing
I'm heading home.
And I hear, the pine trees whisper my name
And I hear the coyotes playing my game.
And I see the hay fields waving me on,
Where snowflakes keep falling so peaceful and calm.
To fresh air and sunshine, it's waiting for me
And this time tomorrow that's where I'll be.
Last line: The Cariboo's calling ...
