The Horse

  • (Iain C. MacKintosh)

    I'm driving down this motorway
    No one's passed me yet
    My arm on the edge of the window ledge
    Makes the wind whistle like a jet
    I got one finger on the steering wheel
    To keep her steady on course
    And I'm rolling like thunder but I sometimes wonder
    Does anyone remember the horse

    Then if you dozed, the reins went slack
    The horse knew the way, he'd bring you back
    Maybe you got there a little late
    But the folks didn't mind if they had to wait
    Does anyone remember the horse
    Does anyone remember the horse

    My foot's on the floor, she won't do any more
    There's no use wasting time
    Eyes fixed like a rifle sight
    On that neverending centre line
    My headlights are cutting through the night
    And I'm moving like a natural force
    And I'm rolling like thunder but I sometimes wonder
    Does anyone remember the horse

    Then the sun shone down from a clear blue sky
    You tipped your head if a friend walked by
    The horse didn't need any oil or gas
    Just a drink of water and a feed of grass
    Does anyone remember the horse
    Does anyone remember the horse

    A diesel on my tail, right behind me
    In the mirror headlights blind me
    He hits the button, the airhorns blast
    But I'm in front, he won't get past
    I won't slow down I don't know how
    I won't slow down it's too late now
    I curse the car the truck and the bus
    They've killed the horse and they're killing us

  • [1990:] The only hypocritical song I sing - I couldn't live without my car! (Intro Iain MacKintosh)

  • [1991:] Like most people, I have some nostalgia for old ways and old days. I need a car for my work, but sometimes, just sometimes I wish ... (Notes Iain MacKintosh, 'Just My Cup of Tea')
