The Pilgrim: Chapter 33 (LP Version) - Kris Kristoffersen

See him wasted on the sidewalk

in his jacket and his jeans

 

Wearin' yesterday's misfortunes like a smile

 

Once he had a future full of money,

love, and dreams

Which he spent like they was goin' outta style

 

And he keeps right on a-changin'

for the better or the worse

 

Searchin' for a shrine, he's never found

 

Never knowin' if believin' is a blessin' or a curse

 

Or if the goin' up was worth the comin' down

 

He's a poet and he's a picker,

he's a prophet and he's a pusher

He's a pilgrim and a preacher

and a problem when he's stoned

He's a walkin' contradiction,

partly truth and partly fiction

Takin' every wrong direction

on his lonely way back home

 

He has tasted good and evil

in your bedrooms and your bars

 

And he's traded in tomorrow for today

 

Runnin' from his devils, Lord,

and reachin' for the stars

And losin' all he's loved along the way

 

But if this world keeps right

on turnin' for the better or the worse

 

And all he ever gets is older and around

 

From the rockin' of the cradle

to the rollin' of the hearse

 

The goin' up was worth the comin' down

 

He's a poet and he's a picker,

he's a prophet, he's a pusher

 

He's a pilgrim and a preacher

and a problem when he's stoned

 

He's a walkin' contradiction,

partly truth and partly fiction

 

Takin' every wrong direction

on his lonely way back home
