  • Written by roger mcguinn and jacques levy
  • Always alone never with a herd
  • Prettiest mare Ive ever seen
  • Youll have to take my word
  • Im gonna catch that horse if I can
  • And when I do Ill give her my brand
  • Well I was up on stony ridge after this chestnut mare
  • Id been chasin her for weeks
  • Oh, Id catch a glimpse of her every once in a while
  • Takin her meal, or bathin
  • A fine lady
  • This one day I happened to be real close to her
  • I saw her standin over there
  • So I snuck up to her nice and easy
  • And I got my rope out
  • And I flung it in the air
  • Im gonna catch that horse if I can
  • And when I do Ill give her my brand
  • And well be friends for life
  • Shell be just like a wife
  • Im gonna catch that horse if I can
  • Well I got her, and Im pullin on her, shes pullin back
  • Like a mule goin up a ladder
  • I take this chance and I jump up on her
  • Damned if I dont land right on top of her
  • Well she takes off, runnin up on to that ridge
  • Higher than Ive ever been before
  • Shes runnin along just fine, till she stops
  • Something spooked her
  • Its a sidewinder, all coiled and ready to strike
  • She doesnt know what to do for a second
  • But then she jumps off the edge
  • Me holding on
  • Above the clouds
  • Higher than eagles were gliding
  • Suspended in the sky
  • Over the moon
  • Straight for the sun we were riding
  • My eyes were filled with light
  • Behind us black walls
  • Below us a bottomless canyon
  • Floating with no sound
  • Gulls far below
  • Seemed to be suddenly rising
  • Exploding all around
  • Im gonna catch that horse if I can
  • And when I do Ill give her my brand
  • And well be friends for life
  • Shell be just like a wife
  • Im gonna catch that horse if I can
  • And we were falling down this crevice, about a mile down
  • Id say! I look down and I see this red thing below us
  • Its our reflection in a little pool of water
  • About six feet wide, and one foot deep
  • And were comin up real fast
  • Crawling down right through it
  • We hit and we splashed it dry
  • Thats when I lost my hold and she got away
  • But Im gonna try to get her again some day
  • Im gonna catch that horse if I can
  • And when I do Ill give her my brand
  • And well be friends for life
  • Shell be just like a wife
  • Im gonna catch that horse
  • Im gonna catch that horse
  • Im gonna catch that horse if I can
  • Im gonna catch that horse if I can
