The Wild West Is Where I Want to Be Tom Lehrer
[Bb7]Along the tra[Eb6]il you'll find me lopin'
[Ab6]Where the spaces a[Eb6]re wide open,
[Ebdim]In the [Eb]land of the [C6]old A.E.[F]C. (ye[Bb7]a-hah!)
[Eb]Where the scenery's attractive,
[Eb7]And the [Ab]air is radio-[F7]active,
[Bb7]Oh, the wild west is where [Eb]I wa[Edim]nna be[Bb7].
[Eb6]Mid the sagebrush and the cactus,
[Ab6]I'll watch the fe[Eb]llas practice
[Ebdim]Droppin' [Eb]bombs through the [C7]clean desert [F7]breez[Bb7]e.
[Eb]I'll have on my sombrero,
[Eb7]And of [Ab]course I'll wear a [F7]pair o'
[Bb7]Levis over my lea[Eb6]d B.V[Ab].D.'[Abm6]s.[Eb]
[Eb7]I will [Ab]leave the city's rush,
[Bb7]Leave the [Eb]fancy [Bbm6]and the [C7]plush,
[Fm7]Leave the[Fm7] snow and [Bb7]leave the slush
[Eb]And the crowds.
[Eb7]I will [Ab]seek the desert's hush,
[bB7]Where the [Eb]scene[Bbm6]ry is [C7]lush,
[F7]How I long to see the mush-
[Eb6]'mid the yuccas and the thistles
[Ab6]I'll watch the gu[Eb]ided missiles,
[Ebdim]While the [Eb]old F.B.[C7]I. watches [F7]me. (yea[Bb7]-hah!)
[Eb]Yes, I'll soon make my appearance
[Eb7](soon as [Ab]I can get my [F7]clearance),
[Bb7]'cause the wild west is whe[Eb6]re I w[AB]anna [Abm6]be. [Eb]
