If this old horse could talk
(He'd) tell you tales of high adventure on the open range
The smell of sweat and gun smoke
And riding fast across the plains

He'd tell of the desert sun
Burning bones picked clean by vultures in the hot southern wind
From rogues who never made it
As payment rendered for their sins

And of snow and mountains white
Rollin' valleys deep below the blue horizon
And of the comfort of the campfire
Against the cold and cruel night

And of the times that we rode all night (and)
Wade through swollen rivers wide and hide in dark ravines
And of the moonlight on the mesa
And all God's marvels that we'd seen

He'd tell you of gamblin' fools (and)
Righteous devils wearin' silver stars that we'd defy
We'd gallop far to find a
Quest to live, perhaps to die

'Coz this old horse and me
We lived no half-life and we rode it to the limit
Through all my years of nightmares
Always callin' out your name
Again and again....

(inst.)

Coz this old horse and me
We lived no half-life and we rode it to the limit
Through all my years of nightmares
Always callin' out your name

But this old horse don't talk
And I can no more tell you now than he can how
I'd have given anything
To hold you for just one moment,
once again....

If this old horse could talk.....

Really peaceful guitar. Love the flow. Nice pickin' and great story!
