I Ride An Old Paint (Cash Johnny)

I ride an old paint I lead an old Dan I'm off to Montan' for to throw the hooley ann They feed in the coulees they water in the draw Their tails're all matted their backs're all raw Ride around little dogies ride around slow The fiery and snuffy are raring to go [ strings ] Well Johns had two daughters and the song One went to Denver the other went wrong His young wife died in a poolroom fight But he tries to keep singing from morning till night Ride around little dogies ride around slow The fiery and snuffy are raring to go [ strings ] When I die take my saddle from the wall Strap it my pony lead him out of the stall Throw my bones on his back turn our faces tothe west And we'll ride the prairie that we love the best Ride around little dogies ride around slow The fiery and snuffy are raring to go
