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