​Pony

This song is by Sara Watkins and appears on the album Sara Watkins (2009).

I've seen it all, boys
I've been all over
Been everywhere in the whole wide world
I rode the high line
With old blind darby
I danced real slow with ida jane

I was full of wonder
When I left murfreesboro
Now I am full of hollow on maxwell street
And I hope my pony
I hope my pony
I hope my pony knows the way back home

I walked from natchez
To hushpakina
I built a fire by the side of the road
I worked for nothin'
In a belzoni saw mill
I caught a blind out on the b&o

Taluah's friendly
Belzoni ain't so
A forty-four'll get you ninety-nine
And I hope my pony
I hope my pony
I hope my pony knows the way back home

I run my race
With burned-face jake
Gave him a manzanita cross
And I lived on nothing
But dreams and train smoke
Somehow my watch and chain got lost

I wish I was home
In evelyn's kitchen
With old gyp curled around my feet
And I hope my pony
I hope my pony
I hope my pony knows the way back home

Oh I hope my pony
I hope my pony
I hope my pony knows the way back home
