THE WILD WEST IS WHERE I WANT TO BE

SOURCE: Bob Pfeffer
SOURCE'S SOURCE: Tom Lehrer, Too Many Songs by Tom Lehrer (Pantheon, 1981)

D
Along the trail you'll find me lopin'
G D
Where the spaces are wide open,
D E A
In the land of the old AEC (DOE, NRC, ERDA?)
D
Where the scenery's attractive,
G
And the air is radioactive,
A7 D
Oh, the wild west is where I want to be.

'Mid the sagebrush and the cactus
I will watch the fellers practice
Droppin' bombs through the clean desert breeze.
I will have on my sombrero
And of course I'll wear a pair o'
Levis over my lead BVD's
G

INTERLUDE: I will leave the city's rush,
D
Leave the fancy and the plush,
A7
Leave the snow and leave the slush
D D7
And the crowds.
G(E+3 g(e+3
I will seek the desert's hush,
D
Where the scenery is lush,
E
How I long to see the mush-
A A7
Room clouds

"Mid the yuccas and the thistles
I will watch the guided missiles,
While the old FBI watches me.
Yes, I'll soon make my appearance
(Soon as I can get my clearance),
'Cause the wild west is where I want to be.
