LET THE REST OF THE WORLD GO BY
 
div
 
Is the struggle and strife we find in this life
Really worth while after all?
I've been wishing today I could just run away
Out where the West winds call.

With someone like you a pal good and true
I'd like to leave it all behind, and go and find
Some place that's known to God alone
Just a spot to call our own.

We'll find perfect peace, where joys never cease
Out there beneath the kindly sky
We'll build a sweet little nest, somewhere out in the west
And let the rest of the world go by.

Is the future to hold just struggles for gold
While the real world waits outside
Away out on the breast of the wonderful West
Across the great divide?
