Theme for an Imaginary Western

This song is by Colosseum and appears on the album Daughter of Time (1970).

This song is a cover of "Theme for an Imaginary Western" by Jack Bruce.
Oh the sun was in their eyes
And the desert that dries

When the wagons, yeah leave the city
For the forest and further on
Painted wagons of the morning
Dusty roads where they have gone
Sometimes travelling through the darkness
Met the summer coming home
Fallen faces by the wayside
Looked as if they might have known

Oh the sun was in their eyes
And the desert that dries
In the country town
Laughter sounds

Oh the dancing and the singing
Oh the music, yeah where they played
Oh the fires, oh that they started
Oh the girls with no regrets
Sometimes they found it
Sometimes they lost it, baby
Often lost it on the way
Often fought each other just to possess it, yeah
Sometimes died in sight of day

Oh the sun was in their eyes
And the desert that dries
In the country town
Laughter sounds
