Only Friend

My only Friend

Between now and the bitter end
My saddle horse will be my only friend

Unlike the woman of my past
Our love for each other will last and last

Since I'm speaking of her I will confide
This big ole walker is more fun to ride

When things in my marriage started to go awry
I saddled up and waived goodbye

Into the high country we did fly
Before anyone could see me cry

All I have left is my trusty steed
For the rest of my life he's all I need
