      About "Pilgrims Progress"

      Lyrics for Procol Harum - "Pilgrims Progress"

      (fisher / reid)

      I sat me down to write a simple story
      Which maybe in the end became a song
      In trying to find the words which might begin it
      I found these were the thoughts I brought along

      At first I took my weight to be an anchor
      And gathered up my fears to guide me round
      But then I clearly saw my own delusion
      And found my struggles further bogged me down

      In starting out I thought to go exploring
      And set my foot upon the nearest road
      In vain I looked to find the promised turning
      But only saw how far I was from home

      In searching I forsook the paths of learning
      And sought instead to find some pirate's gold
      In fighting I did hurt those dearest to me
      And still no hidden truths could I unfold

      I sat me down to write a simple story
      Which maybe in the end became a song
      The words have all been writ by one before me
      We're taking turns in trying to pass them on
      Oh, we're taking turns in trying to pass them on
