El Gaucho                     W.Shorter/C.Foster

In the dust of the dawn
He’s saddled and gone
O’er hills and far away
He has left home
And he never will return
He has pushed back
Everything he ever had
For a fresh start
In a land he hasn’t seen
(To) make a new life
For a man whose tired of dreams

It’s a journey that’s long
Determined and strong
He’ll get there very soon
Under hot sun
He will have to struggle through
Under dry heat
He has fears he’ll have to meet
He’s alone now
And his doubts give him a sign
(That) when he gets there
It won’t be that place divine
