Lyrics/Chords

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

CHORUS (X2)
Em
Ride On,
C
See you,
D					    Em
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to.

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

Chorus (X2)

You can now play the intro/outro solo or continue fingerpicking.
Either way the song now fades to a close.
Any suggestions/advice post it on the forum.
