The Charlie Daniels Band

The Charlie Daniels Band - Caballo Diablo

rate me

Wild as a coastal boranca, swift as the wind blowin' free

With two eyes like fire brands that glow in the night

Somewhere up there he's waitin' for me

And he knows that I'm coming for him

I just can't rest 'til I find

That raven black stallion, who wears no man's brand

With a wild restless spirit like mine

They call him Caballo Diablo

Half horse and half devil they say

Caballo Diablo the outlaw

Of the blanca Sierra Madre

Two men before tried to take him

They had their chance one by one

But each met his fate when those flashin' black hooves

Brought death 'neath the Mexican sun

Still I can't leave I must find him

You fool of a horse can't you see

I may be half man, but the other half's devil

And you're just exactly like me


Even the breeze has stopped movin'

Hush now - be still

Don't make a sound and stay close to the ground

Cause he's waitin' just over that hill

Downwind behind him move quickly

Do it fast now, he's startin' to stir

Grab a hand full of mane and up onto his back

And start breaking him down with my spurs

But try as he will he can't shake me

As over the preface we go

To spill the lifes blood of a horse and a man

On the rocky Sierra below
