Get Back on That Pony

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Under This Old Hat (1993).

Seven years old on a gold palomino
Well, I sat up tall with my face to the wind
I'd seen the rodeo cowboys in Reno
So I dug in my boot heels and pulled on the reins

And Blaze he took off a-runnin'
He threw me down off the side
Then my Uncle Jim picked me up once again
Said, "Get back on that pony and ride"
"Get back on that pony and ride"

So lift up your head boy I know how you're feeling
You say you won't ride with a chance you might lose
You fallen from love and your head is still reeling
Your heart and your pride have been shaken and bruised

And like Blaze she took off a-runnin'
Love threw you down off the side
But stand up again, shake it off if you can
Then get back on that pony and ride
Get back on that pony and ride

I'm not saying forget what you lost
I suppose there's a purpose in pain
What we make of ourselves has a cost
And it's paid every time we take hold of the reins

So dust off your blue jeans, get back in the saddle
Losing's a place to start over again
Gettin' back up there is half of the battle
And love like a pony should race with the wind

And like Blaze it takes off a-runnin'
And it may threw you down off the side
But stand up again, shake it off if you can
Then get back on that pony and ride
Get back on that pony and ride
