Stone Blind Horses

VERSE
There are some saints that have been forgotten   [A]
Like most of my drunken prayers.   [B]
They say there’s a heaven somewhere above the yonder   [C]
Where there’s no more crosses to bear.   [B]

VERSE
Now there’s ghosts along the highways,   [D]
And there’s storms out on the seas.   [E]
My only hope is somewhere in that heaven   [F]
Some one is saying a prayer for me.   [E]

CHORUS
I been ridin’ stone blind horses,   [A]
Never seeing a reason to believe.   [E]
Hey sweet Genevieve say a prayer for me:   [E]
The wild young cowboys, old drunks, paramours and thieves.   [E]

VERSE
The high slurred whistle of a red wing blackbird  [G]
Sounds like he’s singing oh that I might die.  [H]
It’s a song for those who have fallen,  [F]
Unrepentant with no more alibis.  [H]

CHORUS
I been ridin’ stone blind horses,   [A]
Never seeing a reason to believe.   [E]
Hey sweet Genevieve say a prayer for me:   [E]
The wild young cowboys, old drunks, paramours and thieves.   [E]

Hey sweet Genevieve say a prayer for me:   [E]
The wild young cowboys, old drunks, paramours and thieves.   [E]
