Ride Forever

(by Paul Gross David Keenly)

I was born up north of Great Slave, 1898
And I rode near all my life on a ranch near Devil's Gate
And I've seen this world about me bend and flip and change
Hey, it feels like rain - that's a thunder cloud

I've been called a coward, but I've seen two world wars
And I lost my son Virgil, my Korean reward
And my Lucy died last summer - you ask me if I cry?
Hell, I'll show you tears, they're all over this ground
They're falling from these blue Alberta skies

※ But I'm going to ride forever
You can't keep horsemen in a cage
Should the angels call, well it's only then
I might pull the reins

Now they tell me I'm an old man, they tell me I am blind
They took my driver's license, this house ain't far behind
I say jump back all you big suits, 'cause you've got something wrong
I ain't gone, no I ain't gone

I am still breathing, and I still have my pride
And I have my memories, your life it never dies
Like the wind that blows in thunder
Or the stallion on the fly - I got it all
And I'm standing tall underneath these blue Alberta skies

※ repeat

So I say to all you old men - don't let yourself get broke
If you think the world's gone crazy, and it's scratching at your throat
It's time to dust off that old saddle, get it on a horse
Kick up your spurs, we're gonna run like stink
We're gonna tear across these blue Alberta skies

※ repeat




エピソードの中ではコーラスの部分 I が We に変わっています。
多分 old man と run like stink がかけてあるのでしょう。

この run like stink は 俗語で 早く走るという意味ですが・・・
