The Long Trails (1997)
I’ve been chasing rainbows since I was a kid
Seekin’ out the paths where no others did.
The life of the trail I took to my heart,
Wanderin’ wild, and livin’ the part.
I found my way down that endless track,
It fit me well, this life of the pack,
Out where the world is one, untamed and on the run,
Stretching out into the setting sun.

I walk the long trails, I came of age on the long trails,
I found my place in those wide open spaces
Out there a-walkin’ on the long trails.

—WALKIN’ JIM STOLZ, US Long-Distance Hiker, Song Writer, 1953-2010, Walkin’ Jim Music, BMI

On the Crest Trail (1996)
Out on the Crest Trail, there’s a wind a-blowin’,
Mojave wind, blowin’ way my cares,
It’s pushing me northward, that’s where I’m a-goin’,
I’m bound for the border and I’ll soon be there.

Back On The Trail Again (1984)
And I’m back on the trail again,
missed you like some long lost friend,
Sometimes I think I’m just a part of the wind,
When I’m back on the trail again.

All Along The Great Divide (1984)
The crystal morning is broken with the cooing of a dove
As you head on up the trail to the highlands up above
Where the colors of the rainbow, are the flowers at your feet,
And your heart sings a song with every beat.

Happy Trails (1951)

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin’ until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we’re together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you till we meet again.

Some trails are happy ones.
Others are blue.
It’s the way you ride the trail that counts.
Here’s a happy one for you.
—DALE EVANS, US Film Star, Singer, Songwriter, 1912-2001
