Blijft de wolf leven?

De tekst gaat niet alleen over de wolf, als je hem leest is dat nog duidelijker. De groep heet niet voor niets zelf Los Lobos.
Naar aanleiding van de jacht op die ene beer in Beieren draai ik hem nu "vast" voor het hooggeëerd publiek. Wie doet er mee? De versie van Waylon Jennings mag ook.


Through the chill of winter
Running across the frozen lake
Hunters are out on his trail
All odds are against him
With a family to provide for
The one thing he must keep alive
Will the wolf survive?

Drifting by the roadside
Climbs each storm and aging face
Wants to make some morning's fate
Losing to the range war
He's got two strong legs to guide him
Two strong arms keep him alive
Will the wolf survive?

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

Sounds across the nation
Coming from your hearts and minds
Battered drums and old guitars
Singing songs of passion
It's the truth that they all look for
The one thing they must keep alive
Will the wolf survive?
Will the wolf survive?
