I Ride An Old Paint

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
I ride an old paint, I lead an old Dan
I'm off to Montan’ for to throw the holley-ann
They feed in the coulees, they water in the draw
Their tails are all matted, their backs are all raw

Carter Sisters and Johnny: Ride around little dogies, ride around slow
Johnny: The fiery and snuffy are raring to go
Johnny:
Bill Jones had two daughters and a song
One went to Denver, the other went wrong
His young wife died in a poolroom fight
But he tries to keep singing from morning till night

Carter Sisters and Johnny: Ride around little dogies, ride around slow
Johnny: The fiery and snuffy are raring to go
Johnny:
When I die take my saddle from the wall
Strap it on my pony, lead him out of the stall
Throw my bones on his back, turn our faces to the west
And we'll ride the prairie that we love the best

Carter Sisters and Johnny: Ride around little dogies, ride around slow
Johnny: The fiery and snuffy are raring to go
