D A6 Bm Always alone, G G/F#bass A7 never with a herd D A6 Bm Prettiest mare I've ever seen, G G/F#bass A7 you'll have to take my word G G/F# bass Em A7 D A6 Bm I'm going to catch that horse if I can G G/F# bass Em A7 D A6 Bm and when I do I'll give her my brand D A6 Bm Well I was up on Stony Ridge G G/F#bass Em A7 after this chestnut mare, been chasing her for weeks D A6 Bm Oh I'd catch a glimpse of her every once in a while G G/F#bass Em A7 (A7sus A7) D taking her meal, bathing, fine lady A6 Bm This one day I happen to be real close to her G G/F#bass Em and I saw her standing over there A7 D A6 Bm so I snuck up on her nice and easy G G/F#bass got my rope out Em A7 and I flung it in the air! CHORUS G G/F# bass Em A7 D A6 Bm I'm going to catch that horse if I can G G/F# bass Em A7 D A6 Bm and when I do I'll give her my brand G G/F#bass Em And we'll be friends for life G G/F#bass Em She'll be just like a wife G G/F#bass Em A7 D A6 Bm I'm going to catch that horse if I can And I got her and I'm pulling on her And she's pulling back like this mule going 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, running up onto the ridge higher than I've ever been before She's running 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 holding on (Canyon music!) D (A bass, B bass) C C/B bass Em Above the hills, higher than eagles were gliding (Ebass, F# bass) G D suspended in the sky D over the hill (A bass, B bass) C C/B bass Em straight for the sun we were riding (E bass, F# bass) G G/F# bass Asus my eyes were filled with light D behind those black walls (A bass, B bass) C C/B bass Em below was a bottomless canyon (Ebass, F# bass) G D floating with no sound D ghosts far below (A bass, B bass) C C/B bass Em seemed to be suddenly rising G G/F#bass Asus exploding all around (Chorus) We were falling down this crevice about about a mile down it seem and I looked down And I see this red thing below us coming up real fast and it's our reflection that's this little pool of water about six feet wide and one foot deep We're falling down right through it We hit, we splashed it dry that's when I lost my hold and she got away but I'm gonna try and get her again some day (Chorus) -- Len Moskowitz
