Lyrics

Male Chorus: Get on the wagon rolling west
Seeking a land that's new
Get on the wagon rolling west
There's plenty of room for you

Get on the wagon rolling west
Out to the great unknown
Get on the wagon rolling west
Or you'll be left alone

Female Chorus: We've made a home before
We're starting out again
Male Chorus: We ain't a'feared of man or beast
We're strong-hearted men

(with Johnny singing along)
So, get on the wagon rolling west
Seeking a land that's new
Get on the wagon rolling west
There's plenty of room for you

Get on the wagon rolling west
Out to the great unknown
Get on the wagon rolling west
Or you'll be left alone

The rivers may be wide
The mountains may be tall
But nothing stops the pioneer
We're trailblazers all

Oh, get on the wagon rolling west
Out to the great unknown
Get on the wagon rolling west
Or you'll be left alone

You'll be left alone (4x)

Get on the wagon rolling west
Or you'll be left alone

You'll be left alone

(repeat until fade)
