TITLE: The Wild West Is Where I Want to Be
Lyrics and Chords

Along the trail you'll find me lopin'
Where the spaces are wide open
In the land of the old A.E.C., yahoo
Where the scenery's attractive
And the air is radioactive
Oh, the wild west is where I wanna be

/ D - / G - / D - A - / D - / G D / - A D - /

Mid the sagebrush and the cactus
I'll watch the fellas practice
Droppin' bombs through the clean desert breeze, yahoo
I'll have on my sombrero
And of course I'll wear a pair o'
Levis over my lead B.V.D.'s

I will leave the city's rush
Leave the fancy and the plush
Leave the snow and leave the slush and the crowds
I will seek the desert's hush
Where the scenery is lush
How I long to see the mush-room clouds

/ G - / D - / A - D - / G - / D - / E - A - /

'Mid the yuccas and the thistles
I'll watch the guided missiles
While the old F.B.I. watches me, yahoo
Yes, I'll soon make my appearance
Soon as I can get my clearance
'Cause the wild west is where I wanna be
