Storm clouds are building above the timber line
The lightning's flashing across the mountain side
The thunder's rollin' down the canyons of his mind
 Somewhere beyond the great divide
The bugle of the bull elk echos through pines 
The north wind moans her lonesome lullaby
He hungers for the freedom of an eagle as she flies  Somewhere beyond the great divide

He's heard the call of the wild
He's heard the call of the wild
The mountains callin' to him like a mother calls her child 
He's heard the call of the wild
Livin' in the city oh it gets to be a grind 
Puttin' in his hours workin' overtime 
Waitin' for the day he can leave it all behind 
To go somewhere beyond the great divide

He's got to get away from the city for a while 
He's gotta answer the call of the wild
