Let That Pony Run
Mary was married with children. EHad the perfect Suburban life.
'Til her husband came clean with the help of Jim Beam.
And he confessed all his sins one night.
Said he'd fallen in love with a barmaid.
Said she made him feel reckless and young.
And when he got through, what else could she do.
She just let that pony run.
You do what you gotta do. EYou know what you know.
You hang on 'til you can't hang on and then learn to let go.
You get what you need sometimes and when it's all said and done.
You do what you gotta do and then you let that pony run.
Mary moved to West Virginia after the shock wore off.
She got a divorce and a Chestnut horse,
And a barn with an old hayloft.
Sometimes she rides down by the river.
Says it makes her feel reckless and young.
She just closes her eyes and she holds on tight
And she lets that pony run.
Let that pony run.
