This is a song where the fella narrating admires a horse of great beauty or is it the rider he admires - you have to decide.


Ride On

Bm                                                      G
True you ride the finest horse I have ever seen,

A                                                              Bm
Standing sixteen, one or two. With eyes wild and green,

Bm                                                 G
You ride the horse so well, hands light to the touch,

A                                                                 Bm
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to.


Bm           G           A

Ride on, see you, I could never go with you

                            Bm
No matter how I wanted to.


Bm           G           A
Ride on, see you, I could never go with you

                            Bm
No matter how I wanted to.




Bm                                                          G
When you ride in to the night without a trace behind,

A                                           Bm  
Run your claw along my gut one last time.

Bm                                           G
I turn to face an empty space where you used to lie,

       G                                                                            Bm
And look for the spark that lights the night through a teardrop in my eye.


Bm           G           A

Ride on, see you, I could never go with you

                            Bm
No matter how I wanted to.


Bm           G           A
Ride on, see you, I could never go with you

                            Bm
No matter how I wanted to.


                            Bm
No matter how I wanted to.
