"Quarter Horse" lyrics

Quarter Horse

I used to go down
To that corner drug store
Drop my quarter in
My little wild stallion horse
My mind would take out
Across the western plains
Lord I'd like to ride
My little quarter horse again

Cause, oh, how I thought
I was Gene and Roy
Now there never was a hero
Like a real cowboy
And now I know
I can't go back
That's a little too much of course
But if I could
I surely would
Like to ride my quarter horse

Oh, a child's imagination
Can take them anywhere
Sometimes a dream is better
Than really going there
And quarter horse's are wonderful
They are a special breed
But there will never be another
Little quarter horse for me

Cause, oh, how I thought
I was Gene and Roy
Now there never was a hero
Like a real cowboy
And now I know
I can't go back
That's a little too much of course
Oh, but if I could
I surely would
Like to ride my quarter horse

And I'd go back in the saddle
Happy trails to you
Till I ride my little quarter horse again
