Caballo Diablo

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Life as a Rodeo Man (1975) and on the album One Road Man (1998).

This song is a cover of "Caballo Diablo" by The Charlie Daniels Band.
Wild as a coastal barronca, swift as the wind blowing free
With two eyes like fire brands that glow in the night
Somewhere up there he's waiting for me
And he knows that I'm coming' for him
And I just can't rest till I find
That raven black stallion that wears no man's brand
With a wild restless spirit like mine

They call him Caballo Diablo
Half-horse, half-devil they say
Caballo Diablo, the outlaw
Up a top the Sierra Madre

Two men before tried to take him
They had their chance one by one
But each met his fate when those flashing' black hooves
Brought death 'neath the Mexican sun
Still I can't leave, I must find him
You fool of a horse, can't you see?
I may be half man, but the other half's devil
And you're just exactly like me

They call him Caballo Diablo
Half-horse, half-devil they say
Caballo Diablo, the outlaw
Up a top the Sierra Madre

Even the breezes stopped moving, oh hush now be still
Don't make a sound stay close to the ground
'Cause he's waitin' just over that hill
Downwind behind him move quickly
Do it fast now, he's starting to stir
Grab a handful of mane and up on to his back
And start raking him down with your spurs
But try as he will he can't shake me
As over the precipice we go
To shed the life blood of a horse and a man
On the rocky sierra below

They call him Caballo Diablo
Half-horse, half-devil they say
Caballo Diablo, the outlaw
Up a top the Sierra Madre
