Ride On

Em C D Em  --  x2
D Em
Em C D Em

True you ride the finest horse I've ever seen,
Standing sixteen, one or two. With eyes wild and green,
And you ride the horse so well, hands light to the touch, 
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to.

CHORUS
 Ride on, see you
 I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to.

When you ride in to the night without a trace behind,
Run your claw along my gut one last time.
I turn to face an empty space where once you used to lie,
And look for a spark that lights the night
Through a teardrop in my eye.

break
   
CHORUS
CHORUS
