Gone West

Gone West


Gone West into that fine land

Beyond the horizon

The land of dreams


Gone to Texas

It’s skyscrapered plains

Where cattle used to roam


Gone to Mountains

That lick the sky

Above the trees


Gone to the Deserts

With blue flag water

Along the hidden ways


Gone West beyond the western sea

With Elrond and Alan Seeger

From this life in to the next
