Wash Me Down

Come on and take me to the river
Slowly wash my body down
Take my pony from my hands
Lay me gently on the ground

As a boy I rode these hills
Sunlight streamin’ on my face
The smell of horses' sweat and leather
A boyish smile upon my face

Oh but time has a way of takin’ hold
And it chills my poor body to the bone

Had me a gal back in Utah
We settled down for a while
It seems my life it did not suit her
Lord I still can see her smile

Her quilts were warm and soft as rainfall
gently layin' on the ground
Now her face is just a memory
I just can't seem to settle down

My hands are hard and calloused from workin’ all my days
With not much left to show for it
just these lines upon my face

So take my saddle from his back
Let loose of both these reins
He’s healed my heart and filled my soul
Turn him loose upon these plains

For we will meet again in springtime
over on the other side
Just a young horse and his boy
And together we will ride

Now time has a way of takin’ hold
And it chills my old body to the bone 

So take me down to the river
slowly wash my body down
Take my pony from my hands
Lay me gently on the ground
Take this pony from my hands
Lay me gently on the ground
