Song Description

Up tempo look at taking the road less travelled and not conforming in this fast paced world.

Story Behind the Song

Real life experience with my best old partner, Tillicum, who is now in greener pastures.

Lyrics

My mama always wondered where I really came from
I didn?t want a dolly, just a pony that would run
Country music coursing through my veins
I was different from the rest, had to have a looser rein.
They said I?d grow up, I knew I?d never change
A little older in the mirror, but you know I feel the same

I seen the world around me get distorted and confused
The simple things in life get lost before we?re through
They want you to believe what you see on your TV
But the so called good life ain?t for me
They said I?d grow up, I knew I?d never change
You can keep up with your Joneses, I?ll be riding on the range

I?ll have the sun on my back, the wind in my face
Giddy up go I?m gonna beat the rat race
When there?s too much to bear, nowhere to hide
Me and my pony we?ll ride
Me and my pony we?ll ride

I hope I live to be a hundred but I never get old
My hide?ll be as weathered as my roper?s latigos
Boot resting on the railing overlooking my corral
While I slip another carrot to my confidante, my pal

They said I?d grow up, I know I?d never change,
But if I die before my pony
Just put my ashes in his grain,

We?ll have the sun on our back, the wind in our face
Giddy up go we?re gonna beat the rat race, when there?s
Too much to bear, nowhere to hide
Me and my pony we?ll ride, me and my pony we?ll ride?
