Elton John - The Trail We Blaze Lyrics

Look out new world here we come
Brave, intrepid and then some
Pioneers of maximum
Audacity whose resumes
Show that we are just the team
To live where others merely dream
Building up a head of steam
On the trail we blaze

Changing legend into fact
We shall ride into history
Turning myth into truth
We shall surely gaze
On the sweet unfolding
Of an antique mystery
All will be revealed
On the trail we blaze

Paradise is close at hand
Shangri-la the promised land
Seventh heaven on demand
Quite unusual nowadays
Virgin vistas, undefiled
Minds and bodies running wild
In the man behold the child
On the trail we blaze

The trail we blaze
Is a road uncharted
Through terra incognita to a golden shrine
No place for the traveler
To be faint-hearted
We are part of the sumptuous grand design

Shangri-la the promised land
Seventh heaven on demand
Quite unusual nowadays
Virgin vistas, undefiled
Minds and bodies running wild
In the man behold the child
On the trail we blaze

Changing legend into fact
We shall ride into history
Turning myth into truth
We shall surely gaze on the sweet unfolding
Of an antique mystery
All will be revealed
On the trail we blaze
On the trail we blaze

    Now that I listen to this song as an adult and actually listen to the words. It’s actually a great inspirational song to me

  4. Dulce Noemí

    Me gusta más la versión de Mijares

  5. Good Crusader

    This sounds nothing like the guy. weird

    Mic Drop

    It's more of a raw cut


    ho said 2019

  7. Lego IG-88

    Underrated E.J. song

  8. Magi V

    I can't decide whether I love the movie version or this one more, they are both so gorgeous, but with completely different energies. This one is slow, steady and beautiful, urging you to take it slow and appreciate everything around you and see how beautiful the world really is in every little facet, the other version is fast and lively, full of energy, urging you to go explore and see everything, because life is an adventure, there is so much to see and you shouldn't let yourself be tied down when you have the whole sky above you.

    I think I'll just listen to them both in an endless loop

  9. Mavela Salvatore

    I love this song so much ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  10. JimmySteller

    I actually like this version better than the one they use in the finished film. Probably just me, though.

  14. Alaric Linlaw

    I have searched the earth for the mp3 of this song, but cannot find it anywhere....such a unicorn!

  15. Keenan Meyer

    Can I like a video twice? Once for Elton, once for El Dorado?

    Mic Drop

    If you watch a separate video.

    Dave's Range

    Ever been to El Dorado, Arkansas?

  16. Lucrecia Sarmiento

    Movies back then had the best soundtracks.. I mean El Dorado had Elton John, Tarzan Phil Collins, Lilo & Stitch had some Elvis tunes in the movie, etc etc ... Miss my childhood, treasure it with movies like this ...

  17. Tifa Lockart

    still my fav movie and song !

  18. pattar21

    Magi V

    I wouldn't call it the best song ever, but I sure as hell can't stop listening to it :D

  20. Pyro Blast

    This is my life in song form

  21. James Earl Holston

    I realy, realy Love this song. . !

  22. Steven Rivers

    it's a shame that movies like this and the prince of Egypt are dying out/ dead. they have some much more passion and beauty in them than some of the crap nowadays

    Pyro Blast

    Steven Rivers I still watch this and I'm 15 I love this movie

    David Mitchell

    tell me about it @Steven Rivers

    Davy Rockett

    I completely agree with you. The emperor's new groove and the prince of Egypt are my two favorite dreamworks movies.

    Davy Rockett

    Steven Rivers only thing I don't like about this movie is chel's outfit.

    Danny Cortes

    Davy Rockett the emperors new groove is a Disney film but both movies are the best

  23. Philip Lewis

    Love this song!

  24. austin nappier

    I love this movie

  25. TheBeaBop

    Honestly, the soundtrack, the imagery and the concept of this movie still fucking holds up to the stuff that's being made today.


    I totally agree this song rocks

    Mike Abler

    This movie definitely deserves more praise than it gets, I'm actually learning how to play this song on guitar right now

    Mic Drop

    TheBeaBop, the song is very good and I like the movie enough, but it's very underwhelming and could've been much more.

  26. May May

    going to college and putting this on a CD to listen to on the way there :D

  27. StellarGuard 1999

    Abby Brustad



    :D You go! It'll make you feel so much better about life!

    Abby Brustad

    lol I will.....just as soon as i gets moneys to buy the song

  35. ChipmunkiousD

    I went and tried to sing the missing background vocals

  36. Ana Lui

    haha its dorado xDD

  37. kirikakirikakirika

    What child knows and understands these words and references? I mean, I did, but the majority didn't. We had to sing this in choir and it was such a mess because all the other kids kept messing up or forgetting the words...

  38. greenskiis

    There were a lot of differences aside from the beat. The instruments are different, the percussion is almost non-existent, and the female chorus has disappeared (which really gave the movie version that extra "oomph"). Still, I agree that the movie version is VASTLY superior.

  39. Steven Rojas

    In the film the beat is faster that's the only difference but I liked it better in the movie anyway

    Mic Drop

    Steven Rojas Well, it's unedited and you hear more of the instruments and Elton Johns raw voice, allowing this version to be more laid back compared to the movie version.

  40. triohead347

    Keep going...one the trail we blaze. Sorry couldn't resist ;)

  41. Christian Bloodeyes

    Great song. Makes me feel like im at philmont scout ranch, or like a cowboy on a trail.

  42. Itzel Rodriguez

    This song is awesome!

  43. greenskiis

    I remember buying the CD soundtrack for the movie because I loved the movie version of this song. It...wasn't what I paid for.

  44. Moongem

    i think i like the movie version better, thissoudns too wstern stll a great song though

  45. madwerewolf13

    my favorite song in the road to eldorado

  46. Starr Williams
