Redneck Riviera - Bareback Rider

hey there bareback rider
where d'you get that mule?
"belongs to my dad
he keeps it out back
and lets me ride it after school."
hey where bareback rider
are you taking that mule?
"up to the bank where the grass grows long
and a mule can graze 'til he got a belly full."
say there bareback rider
won't you sell me your mule?
if i only had me a pony
i'd ride bareback just like you

oh there ain't prettier sight
in an ugly city on an august night
than bare flesh against horse hide
baby let me see you ride

hey there bareback rider
whatever happened to your mule?
"it got sick and my dad shot it
to let it live would have been cruel."
so where bareback rider do you go after school?
"up to the bank where the grass grows long
longing for that mule."
oh there ain't a prettier sight...
