lyrics

- i dragged that horse to water - you know he wouldn’t drink - i shot him in the shallows before i had the time to think - now i’m out here on foot - still gotta cross the great divide - i’m feeling awful lonesome, wishing i still had a horse to ride - come on, now - my daddy always told me not to play around with matches - got me ahold of a flame thrower, how that fire catches - wouldn’t you know it me and daddy and mama didn’t have nowhere left to live - i was quick to remind daddy though jesus preached we all should just forgive forgive forgive - they took me to the river to get my spirit clean - wouldn’t you know it buddy like nothing you’d ever seen, that river spit me out and threw my bare ass right there up against the shore - i swear it started raining blood and the thunder start to roar - preached screamed that boy got the devil in him lets burn him at the stake - mama jumped in front of me and told them all to wait she said my baby got the devil in him, oh, he got the devil in him too - she said my baby never hurt a fly but look what y’all was about to do - mama said now - I dragged that horse to water that bastard wouldn’t drink so i shot him in the shallows before i had the time to think now i’m out here on foot still gotta cross the great divide feeling awful lonesome wishing i still had that horse to ride - now that i’m a grown man not as young as i once were - reckon in my growing that i found myself a cure - settle down take your time and try not to get caught up in all that haste, but i reckon if it ever came to blows i’d still lay some fool to waste -
