​Race Horse Filly Blues

This song is by Casey Bill Weldon and appears on the compilation album Casey Bill Weldon Vol. 1 1935-1936 (1993).

I got me a race horse filly and she's got those winnin' ways
I got me a race horse filly, well she's got those winnin' ways
Every time I rides my filly, I done ride her like a boat rides an ocean wave

Sometimes she rides like a log wagon, and again she rides like a Cadillac Eight
Sometimes she rides like a log wagon, sometimes she rides like a Cadillac Eight
Sometimes she rides like a Mack truck, sometimes she's passin' like a Ford V8

Every time I take my pony for a ride on your racetrack
Every time I take my pony for a ride on your racetrack
There I'll bet my bottom dollar I'm sure gonna bring my money back

And she never balks, she never bucks, she never turns around in the road
She never balks and she never bucks, she never turns around in the road
And then when I ride my filly she rocks me with one sturdy roll

And I rides my pony all spring summer and fall
And I rides my pony all spring summer and fall
And I'm her only jockey, so please keep away from her stall

March 25, 1935; Chicago, IL
