Are you looking for Fort Yesterday?
The last pilgrim from the lost wagon train?
That went into the desert on a fine spring day?
Are you looking for Fort Yesterday?

Traveller's tales of
a refuge for the strong,
That can't remember
the sunny day long gone,
Bravely riding forth
into the dawn,
Through canyons echoing
his farewell song.

Backtracking the trail that winded wrong.

Are you looking for Fort Yesterday?
A lost little boy crying "Come back Shane,"
Trailing the sundown on his pony gone lame,
Are you looking for Fort Yesterday?
