Rollin', Rollin' along
Horses to a breast, on another song
On the Stagecoach West

Let me go, Stagecoach West
I'm ridin' out today, Stagecoach West
Out where I wanna stay
I won't rest, not while I'm on my way
Rollin', rollin' rollin' Stagecoach West

When you're feelin' low down
Pack your coat and vest
Leave that eastern town
Take the Stagecoach West!
[JB]
