Ride On

Ride On — A lovely song by Christy Moore. (video below)

capo on first fret
     Am           .            /     .      F    .    /    .
It's true... you ride... the finest horse,      I've ever seen 
G         .       /         .      Am    .         /      .      
Standing sixteen one or two   with eyes wild and green 
Am        .         /       .    F      .          /      .
And you ride the horse so well        hands light to the touch 
G        .     /              .            Am     .    /   .          
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to
chorus:
Am   .  /  .  F   .   /   .
Ride   on,       see you 
G        .     /              .            Am     .    /    .
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to
repeat (x2)
Am        .      /      .      F     .       /      .  
When you ride into the night     without a trace behind 
G          .     /      .     Am     .       /     .
Run your claw along my gut,         one last time 
   Am       .      /      .    F     .       /       .
I turn to face an empty space,    where you used to lie 
     G             .          /         .
And look for the spark that lights the night 
              Am       .      /       .          
    through a teardrop in my eye
chorus(x2)
