Christy Moore – Ride On lyrics
True you ride the finest hourse I've ever seen
Standing sixteen, one or two, with eyes wild and green
You ride the horse so well, hands light to the touch
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to
Ride on, see you, 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 turn to face an empty space, where you used to lie
And look for a spark that lights the night
Through a teardrop in my eye

    The meaning of this song is simply "SHERGAR" kidnapped and killed by the Ira this brilliant colt was in stud it John Oxx's stable in the curragh when Kidnapped by the Ira and ransom demands ensued.
    The horse stood 16 one or two and indeed was very highly strung. Born, Bred and trained in Ireland a true champion.

    It's the end of a love affair. The lady is highly strung and has found a lover. They share a bed. After the loving, she leaves an empty space in the warm bed, departs and rides off on her horse into the night, a spark from the hoof lighting the night through a teardrop in his eye, sad, because although she was amazing, she was too much for him.. He could never go with her and keep her from seeing other men. It shows Christy's romantic empathy with wonderful horses, and beautiful, unobtainable women.

    I decided to read up on Shergar. To my dismay the story is true. As Christy Moore was a jockey and as the words show a true understanding of the noble horse, even if not meant to be, it is a beautiful tribute to a potentially wonderful horse. Rid On Sergar.
