The moon hangs over the ridge this cold December dusk
They say if you stop,
                     and listen carefully,
                                          you'll hear the Lone Wolf's song.
The air all around hanging heavy with fog and a haunting musk

It's been told that the Lone Wolf's song is of a love lost long ago
A tale once told to me
                      by the Medicine Men
                                         and the Shamans of the tribe
Accompanied by that haunting song, drifting to the canyon here below

Once, when I was young, I went to seek out the Lone Wolf's song
I ran as far as I could
                       to the Great Mountain
                                            where the Lone Wolf was said to reside
And my life has never been the same since that day so long.
