Cat Power - Silver Stallion Lyrics




I'm gonna steal a silver stallion
With not a mark upon his silky hide
Teach him he can trust me like a sister
One day we'll saddle up and ride

And we're gonna ride
We're gonna ride
Ride like the one-eyed Jack of Diamonds
With the Devil close behind
We're gonna ride
We're gonna ride...

I'm gonna find me a reckless man
Razor blades and ice in his eyes
Just a touch of sadness in his fingers
Thunder and lightning in his thighs

And we're gonna ride
We're gonna ride
Ride like the one-eyed Jack of Diamonds
With the Devil close behind
We're gonna ride
We're gonna ride...

I'm gonna chase the sky forever
With the man, the stallion and the wind
The sun is gonna burn into a cinder
Before we ever pass this way again

And we're gonna ride
We're gonna ride
Ride like the one-eyed Jack of Diamonds
With the Devil close behind
We're gonna ride
We're gonna ride...

  1. Rachel S

    This version is horrible. The highwaymen sung this song. Their version 100 times more beautiful. Highwaymen do this song justice

    JuvoII

    The song is by Lee Clayton. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtnOluEg90c And this is a good version.

  2. MrPocketfullOfSteel

    Never heard this before. Very calming.

    I'm gonna steal a silver stallion
    With not a mark upon his silky hide
    Teach him he can trust me like a sister
    One day we'll saddle up and ride

    And we're gonna ride
    We're gonna ride
    Ride like the one-eyed jack of diamonds
    With the Devil close behind
    We're gonna ride
    We're gonna ride...

    I'm gonna find me a reckless man
    Razor blades and ice in his eyes
    Just a touch of sadness in his fingers
    Thunder and lightning in his thighs

    And we're gonna ride
    We're gonna ride
    Ride like the one-eyed jack of diamonds
    With the Devil close behind
    We're gonna ride
    We're gonna ride...

    I'm gonna chase the sky forever
    With the man, the stallion and the wind
    The sun is gonna burn into a cinder
    Before we ever pass this way again

    And we're gonna ride
    We're gonna ride
    Ride like the one-eyed jack of diamonds
    With the Devil close behind
    We're gonna ride
    We're gonna ride...
