Here are the lyrics from the Michael Martin Murphey recording:

PILGRIMS ON THE WAY (Matthew's Song)
(Marcus Hummon)

Raindrops thumping on my white-walled Chrysler
I'm keeping rhythm with the window wipers
Farmland's drinking every drop that falls
Lightning dancing to the fiddler's call
Black baby squeeze a hot dog bun
Grandpa's got wrinkles from too much sun
Harry Belafonte and the Dixie Dregs
Everybody's drinking from the same cold kegs

The cowboy slaps the dust away
For the sweet senorita with the cross next to the heart
Purple mountains majesty she says hey Gringo what about me

   You don't know me but I know you
   We are pilgrims we are pilgrims on the way
   I could love you and you could love me
   We are pilgrims, we are pilgrims on the way

Banjo pickin' from a motor home
Bulldog barking at my ice cream cone
Old man rocking with a baby on his knee
Schoolgirl peeking from behind a tree
Churchbells singing about Sunday school
Dutchman on a buggy with the golden rule
The homeless sleeping on a whiskey dream
God send his grace on Thee

Home run hittin' in the afternoon
Late night dancing by the harvest moon
Farmer's daughter turns to look my way
This is my chance to say

   Hey you don't know me but I know you...
   On the way
   [ trumpet ]

The waitress points to the west of town
To the promised land as the sun goes down
Thumbs up trucker on the left hand side
We've got towns to see we've got roads to ride

   You don't know me but I know you...
   Pilgrims on the way

(as recorded by Michael Martin Murphey)

Thanks, Joe and Guest David - that's the song, but I have it by someone else, and can't remember who! Grrrr. It will come to me eventually. But knowing the title and author is very helpful.

Kathy Chiavola does a "killer" version of this song!!
I heard her sing this live with the late/great fiddle player Randy Howard in August of 1998.

It's on her "Harvest" CD.
