The Stone Coyotes

My Horse Has Wings

The Stone Coyotes
The Stone Coyotes


I hope you will forgive me
I seem to be at a loss for words
You know they don't come easily
I've always been a solitary bird

There's a dark unguarded pass up ahead
I may not have a prayer of getting through
And while I'm not prone to displays of emotion
I find it hard to say goodbye to you

I ride along the great divide
Far from the world I have known
But my heart still sings and my horse has wings
To fly and carry me home

And I'd like to rise above it
But I fear I've fallen prey
To the forces that I railed against
In my angry young man days

At least that's how it feels tonight
When the world has lost her charms
In her gaudy dress and her bracelets of gold
Dangling from her withered arms

There will be no more tears or lamentations
I'll take the reins and heed the call
I'll make that hill by daybreak
And ride even if I'm riding for a fall
