The Byrds – HD STEREO – Chestnut Mare – CC – German TV May 1971

February 26, 2020


Always alone never with a herd Prettiest mare I’ve ever seen You’ll have to take my word I’m gonna catch that horse if I can And when I do I’ll give her my brand Well I was up on stoney ridge after this chestnut mare I’d been chasin her for weeks now Oh, I’d catch a glimpse of her once in a while Just tak’in her meal or bathing A real fine lady This one day I happened to see her stand’in over there in a clearing So I snuck up to her nice and easy And I got my rope out And I flung it in the air I’m gonna catch that horse if I can And when I do I’ll give her my brand And we’ll be friends for life She’ll be just like a wife I’m gonna catch that horse if I can and I got her and we were fall’in down this crevice about a mile down I’d say and I look down there and I see this red thing below us and it was our reflection in a little pool of water About six feet wide, and one foot deep we were com’in down there about 32 feet per second per second finally hit and we splashed that pool dry That’s when I lost my hold and she got away But I’m gonna get her again some day I’m gonna catch that horse if I can And when I do I’ll give her my brand And we’ll be friends for life She’ll be just like a wife I’m gonna catch that horse I’m gonna catch that horse I’m gonna catch that horse if I can I’m gonna catch that horse if I can

  1. Proof positive that the later Byrds were actually a pretty
    damn good band. Clarence White just BRIliant,
    of course… love that B-Bender on his Tele.

  2. These guys just kept looking  freakier as  time moved on .  I miss these times . Hippies rather than Yuppies .
    This great song got ZERO play time on the radio stations .
    Of the original five  members only three remain
