The Pony Express

This song is by Tex Ritter and appears on the album Children's Songs and Stories (1945).

It's been a while since you left St. Joe and still
I tell myself you gotta feel the same way
I'll get a letter very soon I know
So I call in each day and ask about the relay, and they say

There's nothin' I can do if it don't get through
Just blame it on the pony express
There's nothin' I can say if it goes astray
Blame it on the pony express

I only pray that the long delay doesn't mean
I've lost the heart I had a claim on
But if they stay on a homeward trail
I know there's gonna be a letter with my name on
How can I go on?

There's nothin' I can do if it don't get through
I'm gonna blame it on the pony express
There's nothin' I can say if it goes astray
Why don't you blame it on the pony express?

Honey if you're lonely, blame it on the pony express

Cherokee, Pawnee, Navajo Indian
It's such along way from St. Joe to Sacramento
I'm tryin' not to worry, but my heart is in a hurry
So write just as fast as you can

There's nothin' I can do if it don't get through
Blame it on the pony express
There's nothin' I can say if it goes astray
Just blame it on the pony express

Well, there's nothin' I can do if it don't get through
Why don'tcha blame it on the pony express
I said there's nothin' I can say if it goes astray
Why don't I blame it on the pony express

Well, there's nothin' I can do if it don't get through
Just blame it on the pony express
I said there's nothin' I can say if it goes astray
I'm gonna blame it on the pony express
