Lyrics

 

Well sometimes I'm up, and others I'm down. My doctor tells me that the cure will be found.

Well I'm not so sure. My reason for this: this horse I ride, Foolish Pride. Your pastures are

green. Yeh, your waters are cool. Your gait is so smooth as I ride upon you. I'll fight to the end

with "Right" by my side. The horse I ride, Foolish Pride.

Foolish Pride, get a move on. Come on old dear. Round up my troubles. Corral all my fears.

Well I know your hunger, and I feel your thirst, and I'll make sure your needs are satisfied first.

And the way that I live has been christened by you. And when I'm too old, well, you'll find

someone new. You'll be so gentle on that first ride, and the more speed you gather the

smoother the glide. You dull all my senses. Yeh, you cloud up the truth, and you make me go

thinkin' of my beautiful youth. Black as the sea, smooth like a glow. And you whisper to me,

and you won't let me go.

And the way that I live has been christened by you. And when I'm too old, you'll find someone

new. You'll be so gentle on that first ride, and the more speed you gather the smoother the

glide.

Sometimes I'm up, and others I'm down. My doctor tells me that that the cure will be found.

Well I'm not so sure. My reason for this: This horse I ride, Foolish Pride. Foolish Pride.
