The Vigilante (Remastered) Lyrics

The Vigilante - Judee Sill

 

I see the vigilante watchin' in the deep o' the night

I always find him where his heart is

He's fightin' the good fight

He smells the scent of trouble

And prepares to leave

He's got his eyes on the horizon

Reachin' higher

He's got his eyes on the horizon

 

And his boots on his feet

 

When I was stranded at the crossroads

It was dismal and grey

And when I asked him for directions

He showed me the good way

And if the sky is swirlin' still

His pace never swerves

Because his heart is always faithful

Reachin' higher

Because his heart is always

Faithful to the captain he serves

 

So when the storm of deception

Is roundin' the bend

Y'know the vigilante's watchin'

And he won't let it in

 

Tho' I have seen him climbin' mountains

With so heavy a load

He always lends a helpin' hand

And he walks on the good road

It often makes me wonder

How he wins with such ease

But then he keeps his vigil constant

And he's aimin' to please

 

So when illusion's approachin'

And danger is nigh

Y'know the vigilante's watchin'

And he won't let it by

 

I've seen him fight the fiercest foe

Until its forces divide

Cuz he's the fairest of them

All and he chooses the good side

So when the tempters tease

And try to make him unsure

Y'know the fires of war are burnin'

Reachin' higher

Y'know the fires of war are burnin'

But his weapons are pure

 

So when the clouds of confusion

Can creep into view

Y'know the vigilante's watchin'

And he won't let 'em thru

 

I see the vigilante watchin'

In the deep o' the night

I always find him where his heart is

He's fightin' the good fight

He smells the scent of trouble

And prepares to leave

He's got his eyes on the horizon

Reachin' higher

He's got his eyes on the horizon

And his boots on his feet

 

He's watchin' 24 hours a day
