Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Horse called Napoleon
Subject: RE: Req/ADD: Horse called Napoleon
Here is how I remember it

Had me a horse and I called him Napoleon
Named on account of his boney parts
Bought him from an old post Indian
Known to everyone in these parts

He was so thin you could see right through him
His hair was as fine as the finest silk
Hitched him to an old milk wagon
Taught him to stop when I hollered "milk"

Along came a dude in the finest livery
Asked me if I wanted to race
Sure as a sinner I was coming home a winner
when the dude hollered "milk" and I lost that race.
