The Wild West Show

Back to Album listing


There’s a new dawn breaking in the east
There’s a freight train rolling from the coast
Mississippi down to the Rio Grande
Every little town in the golden land
Flags are flying way down low

And we’re off to see the Wild West Show
We’re off to see the Wild West Show
When there’s a change in the weather
We’ll all go down together
And we’re off to see the Wild West Show

There’s a huckster shouting from his stand
There’s a preacher raving at the crowd
Holding out his hands to the eastern sky
Sucking on the well till the well runs dry
Time is short but he don’t know

And we’re off to see the Wild West Show
We’re off to see the Wild West Show
When there’s a change in the weather
We’ll all go down together
And we’re off to see the Wild West Show

See the wild beast straining at the bars
With a rage nobody can control
Many had to die so that he could thrive
Enemies are keeping him alive
And he can’t distinguish friend from foe

So we’re off to see the Wild West Show
We’re off to see the Wild West Show
When there’s a change in the weather
We’ll all go down together
And we’re off to see the Wild West Show
We’re off to see the Wild West Show
