The Byrds - Chestnut mare lyrics

  Click to play this song!

Chestnut mare by The Byrds


Always alone, never with a herd.
Prettiest mare I've ever seen'
You have to take my word
I'm going to catch that horse if I can.
And when I do I'll give her my brand.
Well I was up on Stoney Ridge, after this Chestnut Mare.
Been chasin' her for weeks,
well I'd catch a glimpse every once and a while
Takin' her meal, or bathin' - Fine Lady
This one day I happened to be real close to her,
and I saw her standin over there,
so I snuck up her nice and easy
I got my rope out,
And I flung it in the air.
I'm going to catch that horse if I can
And when I do I'll give her my brand
And we'll be friends for life, she'll be just like a wife
I'm going to catch that horse if I can
Well I got her and I'm pullin on her,
and she's pullin' back like this mule goin' up a ladder,
And I take a choice and I jump right up on her
Damned if I don't land right on top of her.
And she takes off, runnin' up on to the ridge -
Higher than I've ever been before.
She's runnin' along just fine,
'til she stops and something spooked her,
It's a sidewinder all coiled and ready to strike.
She doesn't know what to do for a second, but then
She jumps off the edge, me holdin on!
Above the hills, higher than eagles were gliding,
Suspended in the sky
Over the moon, straight for the sun we were riding.
My eyes were filled with light.
Behind us black walls, below us a bottomless canyon
Floating with no sound,
Gulls far below, seem to be suddenly raising
Exploding all around
I'm going to catch that horse if I can
And when I do I'll give her my brand
And we'll be friends for life, she'll be just like a wife
I'm going to catch that horse if I can
We were fallin, down this crevass,
'bout a mile down I'd say.
I look down and I see this red thing below us
Comin up real fast
And it's our reflection,
it's a little pool of water, about six feet wide and one foot deep.
We're clawing down right thru it, we hit and splashed it dry.
That's when I lost my hold and she got away,
but I'm gonna try and get her again someday!
I'm going to catch that horse if I can
And when I do I'll give her my brand
And we'll be friends for life, she'll be just like a wife
I'm going to catch that horse
I'm going to catch that horse
I'm going to catch that horse if I can
I'm going to catch that horse if I can
