Wild West Hero Lyrics - Electric Light Orchestra

Review The Song (4)



Wish I was, yeah, a wild west hero.

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, o-oo-o-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 live to be free,
ridin' into the sunset, I wish I could be.

I'd ride the desert sands and through the prairie lands,
try'n 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, o-oo-o-oh, a wild west hero.

Ride the range all the day till the first fading light,
sponsored links
be with my western girl round the fire, oh, so bright.
I'd be the Indians friend, let them live to be free,
ridin' into the sunset, I wish I could be.

Oh, I wish I was, o-oo-o-oh, a wild west hero.
Oh, I wish I was, o-oo-o-oh, a wild west hero.
Oh, I wish I was, o-oo-o-oh, a wild west hero.
Oh, I wish I was, o-oo-o-oh, a wild west hero.
Wish I was, o-o-oo-o-o-o-oo, a wild west hero.

A Masterpiece | Reviewer: Ron | 9/9/14

This song makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Many men of my generation will identify with what Lynne's saying here.
We were brought up on cowboy movies with actors like John Wayne as our hero's we all wanted to be cowboys.
He captures it incredibly with that fantastic rhythmic piano section you're almost riding along on your trusty steed, it's incredible.
The whole song the vocals and orchestration is simply a masterpiece, it just doesn't get any better.

ultimate party anthem | Reviewer: Peter Brown | 1/6/14

For years now we have included this as a family party anthem, all linked in a big circle, , singing the a capella bits quietly, then belting out the chorus's, someone doing bad air guitar in the middle sequences, trying to keep track of the number of repeats in the last chorus etc etc. Seems to encapsulate all kinds of emotions and creates a great feeling of togetherness. Maybe we're just a bunch of cowboys...anyway, go on , try it out, spread the love !!

Wish i was.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/6/11

..a wild west hero.. cant sing along with this song without crack and get watery eyes.. This is one of the songs that i without exeption love the most in my life.. Its Zebula Macahan, Indians and peolpe in need, and its sunset at the campfire with your beloved woman.

Sitting at my office doing boring stuff... i so whish i was..

Classic ELO | Reviewer: dave taylor | 4/6/07

This is a classic ELO song from one of the best LP's they did. Its been 30 years since the out of the blue lp was released and i still love it as much now as i did then.
