From listening to the album many times, I'd say the fourth line is "His old legs stiffened bad in the chill."

Also: Sylvia wrote this song as a gift to Ian after Ian had to put down his favorite horse, Barney.

The album was entitled "Ian and Sylvia with David Wilcox," not to be confused with their early Sixties Vanguard album "Ian and Sylvia."
