Reel 408 Item 8
Let the Rest of the World Go By
While struggling staunchly ________________ in this life
I worthwhile after all,
I was wishing today I could just run away Out where the west winds call.
With someone like you, a pal good and true,
I'd like to leave it all behine, and go and find
Someplace that's known to God alone
Just a spot to call our own
We'll find perfect peace
Where joys never cease
Out there beneath the kindly sky.
Build a sweet little next Somewhere out in the west And let the rest of the world go by.
As the future to hold and struggle for gold While the real world waits outside;
While out on the grass of the wonderful west Across the desert dry.
