Something Awful

as in: MY PONY KNOWS THE WAY by Tom Paxton

The Chisholm Trail became the road to Disneyland
After Billy the Kid, came Lash LaRue
The only longhorn left are in the movies
The only buffalo left are in the zoo

But my pony, my pony knows the way back home
My pony loves his stall and he wants his hay
This night air just might sober me some
My head is poundin' like a Cherokee drum
But my pony, my pony knows the way

Friday evenings, I go into Tahlequah
Where I get myself a haircut and a steak
I buy myself a pint of something awful
Go and make another big mistake


Halfway home, I sometime get this feeling
Wond'rin' why I'm still alone tonight
Then I check the bottle in my pocket
And if it ain't empty, I'm alright.
