I'm Headed West
Lyrics
It sure does seem the Lord has left me

I feel he's gone and let me down

It's clear that everybody hate's me because I mean to leave this town

Why can't a man seek out his fortune there's more to life than just this farm

"I can't take this life like you sir, so please don't hate me when I go"

"I see the scornful look of envy hiding in your eyes for if you had the chance again you'd be as strong as I .

So praise me for my strength to forge a better life .

I'm heading west, to find my treasure chest.

It's time to saddle up and move out
There ain't no crowd to say "so long"

Oh why does every body hate me because I mean to leave this town?

I see him peering through the window
I saw a tear fall from his eye
Perhaps he's not as cold as they say
I pray the lord will keep him well

"I see the scornful look of envy hiding in your eyes for if you had the chance again you'd be as strong as I .

So praise me for my strength to forge a better life for me.

I'm heading west, to find my treasure chest.

It sure does seem the Lord has left me

I feel he's gone and let me down

It's clear that everybody hate's me because I mean to leave this town
