"The Phantom Cowboy" as written by and Judee Sill....
I have seen the phantom cowboy ride
His trail of dust is in my dreams
With an eagle on his shoulder through the clouds he glides
And sprints across the spatial streams
But the ledge is steep, and the light is dark, still I see him leap
And he keeps on headin' for a star
That's not very far, he's travelin' on a sliver filigree

I've been waitin' at the eastern gate
I waved my hand to flag him down
I always hope to catch him but he just can't wait
He's nor allowed to reach the ground
But his touch can heal, When the light is dark, desn't need a shield
Cuz he keeps on headin' for a star
That's not very far, he likes it all just because it's real

Tho' I'm sittin' in the grit and grime
The spark of hope is in me strong
I'm gonna try to get there in the nick of time
And maybe I can ride along
If I have no fear
when the light is dark
I can feel you near
Tho' you keep on headin' for a star
That's not very far, please don't forgit
If your way is clear, I'll be waiting here
