Well I drove across this nation
Only yesterday
There was no one at the station
Just swipe your card and pay
And all the funky hangs and juke joints
In their smoke and neon haze
Fade away like penny postcards
From the roads of your younger days

And you ride the wild horses
Out into the sun
Oh you ride the big dream horses
Beyond the madness and the guns
I will tell Maria
To wait for you no more
‘Cause you ride the wild horses
Like you’ve never done before

I remember Mister Juarez
And the dollar on his wall
And the old men telling stories
How she busted out her stall
Now there’s just a broken trailer
And the traces of her name
In the rust and painted letters
Oh Sweetheart On Parade

I will tell Maria
All the candles on her floor
You ride the wild horses
You ride the wild

From the New York City concrete
To the great Montana sky
To the silver blue Pacific
We are dreamers in disguise
Oh and when my race is over
Says the oldest living son
I’m gonna find that old campaigner
We’re gonna run run run

And we’ll ride the wild horses
You ride the wild horses
You ride the wild horses
Out into the sun
