He's gone away for to stay a little while but he's comin' back if he goes ten thousand miles.
Who are these seven men whose path leads them so far and shake our minds to wonder who they are?
They scout the new frontier to find the surest way and they look to us for they have shown the way.
They're gone away for to stay a little while but they're comin' back if they go ten thousand miles.
What is there left to look to that yet has not been done. What West is there if all the Wests are won?
Look not back o'er your shoulder but high above your head. These seven men have shown the way.
These seven men have said,
"We've gone away for to stay a little while but we're comin' back if we go ten thousand miles. We're gone, gone away."
