Cover of "A Song About Horses" by Aldine. Musical arrangement, instrumentation and production by F. James Bardozi. Vocals by Ramona Fields.


I never asked to be part of this fool's errand life
We meet the world in violence and our first words are cries
From the four walls of the cradle to the tiny wooden horses
We ride

We ride

I never longed for anyone in my whole life
Except the girl on my neighbor's arms, the one I'd make my wife
Laughing, languished, lovers' language
On the summer's stolen horses
We ride

We ride

I can't recall anyone in my whole life
Though ancient actors take the dusty stage from time to time
All their makeup is faded
On the autumn's tired horses
They ride

They ride

I'll never mourn for anyone in my whole life
They all served their purposes
They all did their time
In the four walls of the pine box
To the Pale Horse of forever
They ride

We ride
