Don't have them, but it was on 'Outward Bound' if anyone has that.

I have searched all over the net and I'm pretty convinced they aren't on the web anywhere. Stewie is correct, it IS on Outward Bound and I'm sure if you don't get the lyrics from someone here, you can get the CD from Dick Greenhaus at Camsco Records. Dick is the owner of the Digital Tradition we so heavily rely upon here and going through Dick for your purchase helps support the Mudcat too.

Paxton lyrics are really hard to find on the web; Outward Bound info:
Elektra Records EKL-317 (Mono), EKS-7317 (Stereo) 1966

There is info about Tom and his albums here, with a few lyrics.

Subject: Lyr Add: I FOLLOWED HER INTO THE WEST (Tom Paxton)
From: jonilog
Date: 21 Mar 01 - 09:20 AM

I followed her into the West
where I had never been before
And never did she see me as
I stood there helpless by her door

Each day my resolution rose
and every day an oath I swore
Tonight I'll stand and be a man
Tonight I'll knock upon her door

And shaved and pressed and cleaned and dressed
I'd start upon the quest once more
Tonight I'll stand and be a man
Tonight I'll knock upon her door

I paced my room and cursed myself
I swore that I would go no more
and as the sun was sinking low
I heard a knocking at my door

And standing there with food for me
Standing there my hearts delight
Who said I thought you must be ill
I missed you at my door tonight

Now you must rest and you must eat
your resolution to restore
And when these dishes you return
Be sure to knock upon my door
