It's been a while since you left St. Joe
And still I tell myself
You've got to feel the same way.I'll get aletter very soon.I know so I call in each day
And ask them at the relay
And they say: Hey!
There's nothing I can do
If I don't get through
Blame it on the pony express.
There's nothing I can stay
If it goes a stray
Blame it on the pony express
I only pray that the long delay
Doesn't mean I lost the heart I had a claim on
But if they stay on a homeward trail
I know there's gonna be a letter with my name on
How can I go on
Honey if you're lonely blame it on the pony express.
Na-va-jo Indian it's such a long way
From St. Joe to Sacramento.I'm tryin' not to worry but my heart is in a hurry
So ride just as fast as you can.
