Horse In Town

This song is by Steely Dan and appears on the compilation album The Steely Dan Collection (2000).

Left New Hyde Park to hold my own in New York town
Groped in the dark until I faced the place where scallywags are found
Sharks and yo-yos everywhere
Baby, you can take it from there

Now there's a horse in town
(I'd this dream, the horse???) is chestnut brown
Yes, there's a horse in town
So saddle up and ride, ride, ride

Can you reveal the day he came, the day he'll go
This way I feel the time is moving much too slow
When he passes by your tent
You'll be glad when night is spent

Now there's a horse in town
(I'd this dream, the horse???) is chestnut brown
Yes, there's a horse in town
So saddle up and ride, ride, ride, ride

The shoes of my friend
They stomp his name into the ground
Let's not pretend
We know with all that fearsome sound
Following my frozen trail
Moving to the inside rail

Now there's a horse in town
(I'd this dream, the horse???) is chestnut brown
Yes, there's a horse in town
So saddle up and ride, ride, ride, ride
Saddle up and ride (saddle up and ride)
Saddle up and ride (saddle up and ride)
Saddle up and ride (saddle up and ride)
Saddle up and ride (saddle up and ride)
