Lyrics & Information

This is the 4th track taken from their 1975 album 'Fighting'. When this album came out John Peel raved about it. Little known gem in the overall picture of Thin Lizzy's career but nonetheless amazing. Personally I believe this song was written about Phil himself, realising he would never be the kind of average quiet guy, nor give up the lifestyle he led for anything. But made it out of sympathy for what others felt about him and his addictions. I put this up because the youtube videos of Wild One cut out the solo and for a higher quality play.

Lyrics :-

Wild one wont you please come home
You've been away too long, will ya?
We need you home, we need you near
Come back wild one will ya?

How can we live without your love
You know that could kill ya
And how can we carry on
When you are gone my wild one.

Oh sure you're a wild one
Oh you are a wild one
Over and over and over and over.

So you go your way, and wild one
I'll try and follow
And if you change your mind
I will be waiting here for ya tomorrow.

For I would beg for ya,
I would steal and I would borrow
I'd do anything at all,anything at all
To end this sorrow

My wild one
Oh you're a wild one!
'Cause Johnny goes a 'rolling home

'Cause Johnny goes a 'rolling home
There was no hope!

Wild one
The gypsies warned of the danger
You can laugh and joke with friends
But don't you ever talk to strangers

Although their offers may be sweet
I'll bet and I will wager
Away you'll stray and never come back
To those who love and made ya

'Cause Johnny goes a 'rolling home
Away you'll stray away you'll stray
Over and over and over and over
My one and only wild one!
