ballad of the lonely argonaut

half by sea
through the isthmus o'er the cape they're roundin'
and over land
follow the shallow ribbon of the plaid

in el dorado ways
the avalance
and the boys are off to see
the elephants

how does it feel
to roam this land like Harte and Twain did
how how how does it feel
a thousand miles closer to hell

over land
they passed godís bluff
and crossed the bayís end
half by sea
they follow the coast and through the gate where
gold is coated with gold on the land and hills
where we lay for hours and hours
cool gray ladies with ? ?
spreading his cheer and they sit for hours and hours

the luck of the roaring camp
and how they talk
the outcast of the flats
and their poker face

cannot hide the fever of the childrens crusades
slow slower than slow
days fill into one another
gold is coated with gold on the land and hills where we lay for hours and hours
cool gray ladies with ? ?
spreading his cheer and they sit for hours and hours

on to comrade's twenty sixth
