When the wagons leave the city
For the forest and futher on
Painted wagons of the morning
Dusty roads where they have gone

Sometimes travelinґ through the darkness
Met the summer comin' home
Fallen faces by the wayside
Look as if they might have known

All the sun was in their eye
And the desert thatґs dry
In the country town
Where the laughter sound

Oh the dancing and the singing
Oh the music when they play
Oh the fire that they started
All the girls with no regret

Sometimes they found it
Sometimes they kept it
Ofen lost it on the way
Fought each other to posses it
Sometimes die in sight of day

Oh the sun was in their eye
And the desert thatґs dry
In the country town
where the laughter sound

    Written shortly after the break of of cream from his songs for a taylor album "theme" was written for felix pappalardi's new band mountain, which faithfully carried on the new tradition cream had established. It's a very nice song, "no regret". "oh the music when they play
    oh the fire that they started" could only be about cream's two short years. But after all, it's just an imaginary western.
