  1. Wash Me Down

From the recording Wash Me Down

Lyrics

Wash Me DownCome on and take me to the riverSlowly wash my body downTake my pony from my handsLay me gently on the groundAs a boy I rode these hillsSunlight streamin’ on my faceThe smell of horses' sweat and leatherA boyish smile upon my faceOh but time has a way of takin’ holdAnd it chills my poor body to the boneHad me a gal back in UtahWe settled down for a whileIt seems my life it did not suit herLord I still can see her smileHer quilts were warm and soft as rainfallgently layin' on the groundNow her face is just a memoryI just can't seem to settle downMy hands are hard and calloused from workin’ all my daysWith not much left to show for itjust these lines upon my faceSo take my saddle from his backLet loose of both these reinsHe’s healed my heart and filled my soulTurn him loose upon these plainsFor we will meet again in springtimeover on the other sideJust a young horse and his boyAnd together we will rideNow time has a way of takin’ holdAnd it chills my old body to the bone So take me down to the riverslowly wash my body downTake my pony from my handsLay me gently on the groundTake this pony from my handsLay me gently on the ground
