C. Daniels - Caballo Diablo

rate me

Wild as a coastal boranca<br />

Swift as the wind blowin' free<br />

With two eyes like fire brands that glow in the night<br />

Somewhere up there he's waitin' for me<br />

<br />

And he knows that I'm coming for him<br />

I just can't rest 'til I find<br />

That raven black stallion who wears no man's brand<br />

With a wild restless spirit like mine<br />

<br />

They call him Caballo Diablo<br />

Half horse and half devil they say<br />

Caballo Diablo the outlaw<br />

Of the blanca Sierra Madre<br />

<br />

Two men before tried to take him<br />

They had their chance one by one<br />

But each met his fate when those flashin' black hooves<br />

Brought death 'neath the Mexican sun<br />

<br />

Still I can't leave, I must find him<br />

You fool of a horse can't you see<br />

I may be half man, but the other half's devil<br />

And you're just exactly like me<br />

<br />

They call him Caballo Diablo<br />

Half horse and half devil they say<br />

Caballo Diablo the outlaw<br />

Of the blanca Sierra Madre<br />

<br />

Even the breeze has stopped movin'<br />

Hush now, be still<br />

Don't make a sound and stay close to the ground<br />

'Cause he's waitin' just over that hill<br />

<br />

Downwind behind him move quickly<br />

Do it fast now, he's startin' to stir<br />

Grab a hand full of mane and up onto his back<br />

And start breaking him down with my spurs<br />

<br />

But try as he will, he can't shake me<br />

As over the preface we go<br />

To spill the lifes blood of a horse and a man<br />

On the rocky Sierra below<br />

<br />

They call him Caballo Diablo<br />

Half horse and half devil they say<br />

Caballo Diablo the outlaw<br />

Of the blanca Sierra Madre
