Christopher Cross – Wild Wild West lyrics

Words and music by Christopher Cross and Rob Meurer

Out here on the plains tonight
The white man rules the game
Searching through the flames tonight
There's no one left to blame

This town just don't seem big enough
For the likes of the two of us
Here in the wild wild west
In the wild wild west my friend
Living in the wild wild west
In the wild wild west again

We left our bootprint on the shore
And rode off on toward sunset
We left the natives on the cutting room floor
And the shooting's still not done yet

Lazy boy and channel three
Bourbon and contrition
Say a prayer for the nra
And pass the ammunition

Folly and frustration
Too much information
Desperate situation
Here in the wild wild west
In the wild wild west my friend
