(by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks)

Light the camp and fire mellow
Cabinessence, timely hello
Welcomes the time for a change
Lost and found you still remain there,
And find a meadow filled with grain there.
I'll give you a home on the range.
Who ran the iron horse?
I want to watch you wind-blown, facing
Waves of wheat for your embracing
Folks sing a song of the Grange.
Nestle in a kiss below there,
The constellations ebb and flow there,
And witness our home on the range.
Who ran the iron horse?

Truck driving man, do what you can.
high-tail your load off the road, out of night life.
It's a gas man.
I don't believe I gotta grieve
in and out of luck with a buck
and a booth, catchin' onto the truth.
In the vast past, the last gasp.
In the land, in the dust, trust that you must
catch as catch can.

Have you seen the grand coolie working on the railroad?
Over and over the crow cries uncover the cornfield.

(extra lyrics:)
Reconnected telephones direct dialing
Different color cords to your extension
Don't forget to mention
This is a recording

Even though the echoes in my mind
Have filtered through the pines
I came and found my peace
And this is not a recording

Dooby doo, dooby doo, or not dooby.
