Pilgrim's Progress

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Paint Me Back Home in Wyoming (1978).

There's ghost ridin' prairies whistlin' through the air
There's dreams on main street, broken, dead and bare
And a river and a mountain grow older with the sky
Lookin' for some friends like those from days gone by

While the cowboys and the Indians rode across the range
The poor Buffalo died for silver change
While the renegades and the wranglers drank up half town
Damned if some pilgrims didn't tear the Wild West down

Circlin' like a vulturea all they'd pick the land to bits
Tearin' out its heart forcin' it to quit
Like an old ancient rustler the west just died away
Strangled by progress that greedy beast a prey

While the cowboys and the Indians rode across the range
The poor Buffalo they died for silver change
While the renegades and the wranglers drank up half town
Damned if some pilgrims didn't tear the Wild West down
While the renegades and the wranglers drank up half town
Damned if some pilgrims didn't tear the Wild West down
