A wonderful, horse waiting for me
As beautiful as a horse can be
A Chestnut, red as Mars
When she jumps up, she hits the stars
A deep brown eye, like Jarrah Wood
When I give her aids, she does what she should
This horse is the only one for me
I'll ride her from Queesland, to North Territory
This horse and I, when we meet first
I will ride her for all i'm worth
She'll gallop so fast, it's really frightening
This horse goes by Lightning.
Save Them if you can
I tried my best to save her
Others will confess
For the short time we had together
I gave her my very best
But you see the ending of the story
Had been written without much hope
But to know that she would die at the hands of the horse trader
Was more than we could cope
Although it was much to high
For her sake we paid the price
Even with all that much money we could have bought somthing
Really, really nice.
You could'nt even tell the color of her coat
Oh, dear lord she was so thin
But as she back out of the trail at home
She looked so happy we all had to grin
It only took one day to decide
We had well spent that much money
For so sweet was she, quickly became
Our beloved known as "Honey''.
Going in the stall, kneeling down
Tears flowed from my eyes
But Honey looked up and said
Dear sweet master, please don't cry.
For don't you know my first eighteen months of life
I thought I was living in hell.
But the last month I have spent with you
All has been good and well
You gave me lots of love
You made sure I was well fed
You gave a place to call home
A place to lay my weary head
But know I must go
For my creator way up high
Says it's time for me to go
To that pasture in the sky
But don't feel bad my dear master
For you done what ''he'' wanted you to do
You showed humans can be good
And not all are mean and cruel.
Now she lays in our pasture
With blue bonnets and sandstone marking her grave
I'll never regret one moment
That dear filly I tried to save.
