VERSE 1:
           G    Gmaj7/F#  Em 
When the wagons leave the city,
           A                  F

For the forest and further on.
          G      Gmaj7/F# Em

Painted wagons of the morning,
      A                         C/G

Dusty roads where they have gone.



VERSE 2:
          G    Gmaj7/F#         Em 

Sometimes travelin' through the darkness,
       A         A/G      F

At the summer comin' home.
       G  Gmaj7/F#     Em      

Fallen faces by the wayside,
Em7/D     C/G     Am7        G

Looked as if they might have known.



CHORUS 1:
        Em                    Bm

Oh, the sun was in their eyes,
        Em                Bm

And the desert that's dry.
       C/G     G

In the country town,
          Em       A      C/G

Where the laughter sounds.


VERSE 3:
            G   Gmaj7/F#    Em 

Oh, the dancing and the singing,
        A          A/G         F

Oh, the music when they played.
        G  Gmaj7/F#     Em 

Oh, the fires that they started,
        A             C/G

Oh, the girls with no regret.


VERSE 4:
               G     Gmaj7/F#        
Sometimes they found it,
                    Em
Sometimes they kept it.
      A       A7/G   F 
Often lost it on the way.
         G Gmaj7/F#       Em
For each other to possess it,
Em7/D     C/G      Am7    G
Sometimes right inside of day.


CHORUS 2:
        Em                    Bm

Oh, the sun was in their eyes,
        Em                Bm

And the desert that's dry.
       C/G     G

In the country town,
          Em       A      C/G

Where the laughter sounds.

1.  "Theme for an Imaginary Western" is a song written by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown. The song is 
sometimes referred to as "Theme from an Imaginary Western." It has been performed by many artists, 
including Mountain, Jack Bruce, Leslie West, Colosseum, Greenslade, DC3 and Johan Asherton.
    The song originally appeared on Bruce's Songs for a Tailor album in 1969. The lyrics by Pete Brown 
are mentioned in Brown's autobiography "White Rooms and Imaginary Westerns" (ISBN 978-1906779207) 
as being in reference to Bruce's erstwhile bandmates Dick Heckstall-Smith and Graham Bond of 
The Graham Bond Organisation.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theme_for_an_Imaginary_Western
2.  It has been creatively merged with Jack’s solo vocals and Leslie West’s unique guitar style, 
but it is incorrectly attributed to Leslie West on YouTube, by MISTY2008.  
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PTUpzsDkuA
3.  This is my interpretation of Jack Bruce’s original, which differs from other versions.

Tx Del, 'Much appreciated! I didn't realise that I had submitted this on the anniversary of Jack Bruce's passing, to that big rehearsal room, in the sky. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/jack-bruce-cream-obituary-20141027
