Artist/Band: The Byrds
Lyrics for Song: Chestnut Mare
Lyrics for Album: Complete Album Collection [2011]



Always alone, never with a herd.

Prettiest mare I've ever seen'

You have to take my word



I'm going to catch that horse if I can.

And when I do I'll give her my brand.



Well I was up on Stoney Ridge, after this Chestnut Mare.

Been chasin' her for weeks,

well I'd catch a glimpse every once and a while

Takin' her meal, or bathin' - Fine Lady

This one day I happened to be real close to her,

and I saw her standin over there,

so I snuck up her nice and easy

I got my rope out,

And I flung it in the air.



I'm going to catch that horse if I can

And when I do I'll give her my brand

And we'll be friends for life, she'll be just like a wife

I'm going to catch that horse if I can



Well I got her and I'm pullin on her,

and she's pullin' back like this mule goin' up a ladder,

And I take a choice and I jump right up on her

Damned if I don't land right on top of her.

And she takes off, runnin' up on to the ridge -

Higher than I've ever been before.

She's runnin' along just fine,

'til she stops and something spooked her,

It's a sidewinder all coiled and ready to strike.

She doesn't know what to do for a second, but then

She jumps off the edge, me holdin on!



Above the hills, higher than eagles were gliding,

Suspended in the sky

Over the moon, straight for the sun we were riding.

My eyes were filled with light.

Behind us black walls, below us a bottomless canyon

Floating with no sound,

Gulls far below, seem to be suddenly rising

Exploding all around



I'm going to catch that horse if I can

And when I do I'll give her my brand

And we'll be friends for life, she'll be just like a wife

I'm going to catch that horse if I can



We were fallin, down this crevass,

'bout a mile down I'd say.

I look down and I see this red thing below us

Comin up real fast

And it's our reflection,

it's a little pool of water, about six feet wide and one foot deep.

We're clawing down right thru it, we hit and splashed it dry.

That's when I lost my hold and she got away,

but I'm gonna try and get her again someday!



I'm going to catch that horse if I can

And when I do I'll give her my brand

And we'll be friends for life, she'll be just like a wife

I'm going to catch that horse

I'm going to catch that horse

I'm going to catch that horse if I can

I'm going to catch that horse if I can
