My father was a jockey, taught me how to ride
My father was jockey, taught me how to ride
Once in the middle, then side to side
Once in the middle, then fromside to side

Yeah, ride ride ride
Ride ride ride ride

Ride, ride till the break of dawn
Ride, ride ride johnny ride, till the break of day
My father never never lost a race
My father never never lost a race

Ride ride ride
Ride ride ride ride

Ride, ride till the break of dawn

I ride so hard sometimes, I ride on in my sleep
I ride so hard sometimes, I ride on in my sleep

Ride ride
Ride ride
Ride ride
Ride ride till the break of dawn

Now Johnny, Hammond we gotta hear ye

My father was a jockey, taught me how to ride
My father was a jockey, taught me how to ride
Johnny, Once in the middle, then side to side
Once in the middle, then side to side

Johnny, never never lost a race
Never never lost a race

Lord Lord
My father my dear old father, never lost a race
Taught me same thing, Taught me same thing
