SHE'S IN LOVE WITH HER HORSE
As sung by Joyce Woodson on "She's In Love with Her Horse"
Her appaloosa makes her smile like she's a kid again.
Her appaloosa puts the wild back in her inner child again.
A year ago she was feelin' low, ever since her divorce,
But she's smilin' now; she's in love with her horse.
Her friends have tried to rein her in, but she'll just pout.
Even her boss is suspicious when she sneaks out.
Her mom's afraid she'll break a leg, but that won't change her course.
Ah, there's nothin' you can do; she's in love with her horse.
You should see them: tall and leggy, with a long, beautiful mane.
Muscles on his back have that ripplin' effect.
He comes if she's callin'.
No wonder she's fallin'.
She's got his picture in a silver frame right by her bed.
She doesn't care if the whole world knows she prefers him instead.
There's a magic spell about her.
There's a certain smell about her.
There's nothin' you can do; she's in love with her horse.
Tonight she'll take him ridin' out under a veil of stars.
It's great how well they get along; she'll brush his mane, softly whisper his name.
She's thinkin' of buildin' a stall or barn off the livin' room.
A little hay and they'll both be happy, and, hey, she's got the room.
She's besotted, so let's applaud it.
She's forgot about the divorce.
Ah, there's nothin' you can do: no debate, no discourse.
She's happy now; she's in love with her horse.
[Also sung by Judy Coder on "Songcatcher."]
