Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Horse called Napoleon
Subject: RE: Req/ADD: Horse called Napoleon
I had a horse and his name was napolean
on on the count of his bony parts.

He was skinny you could look right through him,
his hair was as fine as any silk.
I hitched him up to my old milk wagon
and taught him him to stop when i hollered milk.

One day when i was out a ridin',
a fella came along with a rig so neat.
He said to me, ya gul darn ruben
let's run a race right down the street.

We were going helter schelter,
we were running thunder and pace,
sure as a sinner i was a comin as the winner,
when the fellar hollered milk and i lost the race.

That is what i remember of the song. My grandpa used to sing it to my brother and I as kids.
