WESTERN WORLD

 The old west, a place where a cowboy could roam
 The land,

 Drifters could be seen riding in from the horizon, 
 Long ago.

 Wagon trains with families seeking that new world of 
 Hope and prosperity,

 Bandits and outlaws robbing banks, criminals of the day 
 Hanging from trees.

 A western town where a sheriff walked the street trying 
 To keep some peace,

 Gamblers could be heard drinking and howling from a 
 Saloon Long ago.

 Dance hall girls dressed for the time, somewhere back 
 In a western time,
 The eighteen hundreds, where pioneers carved a trail 
 Through the years.

 Western world, where families worked the land, the future  
 Was a mystery to be              Seen.
                 Keith Garrett
