"Stone Blind Horses" lyrics - RAY WYLIE HUBBARD

RAY WYLIE HUBBARD
"Stone Blind Horses"

There are some saints that have been forgotten
Like most of my drunken prayers
They say there's a heaven somewhere above the yonder
Where there's no more crosses to bear

Now there's ghosts along the highways
And there's storms out on the seas
My only hope is somewhere in that heaven
Some one is saying a prayer for me

I been ridin' stone blind horses
Never seeing a reason to believe
Hey sweet Genevieve say a prayer for me
The wild young cowboys, old drunks, paramours and thieves

The high slurred whistle of a red wing blackbird
Sounds like he's singing oh that I might die
It's a song for those that have fallen
Unrepentant with no more alibis

I been ridin' stone blind horses
Never seeing a reason to believe
Hey sweet Genevieve say a prayer for me
The wild young cowboys, old drunks, paramours and thieves
