Justin McBride – Went For A Ride lyrics

He was black as the sky on a moonless night
Real good with the horses never reined them too tight
He rode with the best Hell he rode with me
And they got it all wrong in that book of history

It wasn't the cowboys and ponies it was the horses and men
It wasn't school boys and ladies it was cow towns and sin
And there was blood on the leather and tears in her eyes
We swore at the devil then went for a ride

We told some tales but he told them best
Real life can always use a good stretch
But that don't change the things we did
Cause the truest thing was the life that we lived

It wasn't the cowboys and ponies it was the horses and men
It wasn't school boys and ladies it was cow towns and sin
And there was blood on the leather and tears in her eyes
We swore at the devil then went for a ride

There's more than one kind of pain
There's more than one kind of theft
It's bitter as the night sweet Jesus wept
You stole my heart age stole the fire
And they stole my prairie when they strung all that wire

It wasn't the cowboys and ponies it was the horses and men
It wasn't school boys and ladies it was cow towns and sin
And there was blood on the leather and tears in her eyes
We swore at the devil then went for a ride
