Saddle Up Lady

 

 

(chorus)

I’ll  saddle up Lady

We’ll ride one more time

She’s a calf ropin’ pony

She can turn on a dime

Bought her in Houston

From a cowboy I know

He won a bet from a gambler

Who was shootin’ too slow

 

(1)  Tell Jenny I love her

And I wanted to stay

But duty and danger

They called me away

Blue eyes still haunt me

In the dark of the night

Lord, it seems like some things

Just don’t turn out right

 

(2) Days mix together

As time passes on

No place to ride to

And my dreams are all gone

I’ve traveled the yonders

For silver and gold

Then I laid down one night

And I woke up old.

 

So I’ll Saddle up Lady

And ride out one last time

She’s a calf ropin’ pony

She can turn on a dime

Bought her in Houston

From a cowboy I know

He won a bet from a gambler

He was shootin’ too slow
