"Wild West Hero" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
Sometimes I look up high
And then I think there might,
Just be a better life
Away from all we know
That's where I wanna go
Out on the wild side,
And I wish I was
Oh oh oh oh, a wild west hero.

Ride the range all the day
Till the first fading light
Be with my western girl
Round the fire oh so bright
I'd be the indians' friend
Let them love to be free
Ridin' into the sunset
I wish I could be.

I'd ride the desert sands
And through the prairie lands
Tryin' to do what's right
The folks would come to me
They'd say we need you here
I'd stay there for the night,
Oh I wish I was
Oh oh oh oh, a wild west hero

Ride the range all the day
Till the first fading light
Be with my western girl
Round the fire oh so bright
I'd be the indians' friend
Let them love to be free
Ridin' into the sunset
I wish I could be.

    General CommentJust a little correction for the lyrics:
    not "Let them love to be free" but "Let them live to be free"
