The Pilgrim 
Written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson

G
See him wasted on the sidewalk in his jacket and his jeans
C G
Wearin' yesterday's misfortunes like a smile
C G Em
Once he had a future full of money love and dreams
A7 D7
Which he spent like they was going out of style

G
And he keeps right on a changin' for the better or the worse
C D7 G
And searchin' for a shrine he's never found
C G
Never knowin' if believin' is a blessin' or a curse
C D7 G
Or if the going up is worth to coming down

C G
He's a poet he's a picker he's a prophet he's a pusher
D7 G
He's a pilgrim and a preacher and a problem when he's stoned
C G
He's a walking contradiction partly truth and partly fiction
D7 G
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home


He has tasted good and evil in your bedrooms and your bars
C G
And he's traded in tomorrow for today
C G Em
Runnin' from his devils Lord and reachin' for the stars
A7 D7
And losin' all he loved along the way

G
But if this world keeps right on turning for the better or the worse
C D7 G
All he ever gets is older and around
C G
From the rocking of the cradle to the rolling of the hearse
Am D7 G
The going up was worth the coming down

Repeat #3

D7 G
There's lotta wrong directions on that lonely way back home
