You had your chance to show affection
You had your chance to give me more
And now that she's found new direction
You make your way to my back door

What makes you think the whole world wants you?
Give steel a kiss and it will bend
The flesh is weak and when it's all been said and done
The spirit's all that's left in the end

If you have to saddle your high horse
Go on and ride out of my sight
(Ride out of my sight)
You never had the time of day for me, you know
And now you want to spend the night

You're big with the come on like it's no big deal
No big deal to you
You let the wild wind blow your course
(Wild wind blow your course)
I do not want the dirt from your shoes
Or from the hooves of your high horse

The way I see it there are few things left
To hold on to and keep your head, yeah
When it's your sense of humor and integrity
There's nothing funny about what's being said

There was a day when I would let myself be trampled
As long as it was done by you
(As long as it was done by you)
But I took so much abuse now I've had ample
There's no way that you'll break through

If you have to saddle your high horse
Go on and ride out of my sight
(Ride out of my sight)
You never had the time of day for me you know
And now you want to spend the night

You're big with the come on like it's no big deal
No big deal to you
You let the wild wind blow your course
(Wild wind blow your course)
I do not want the dirt from your shoes
Or from the hooves of your high horse

You had your chance to show affection
(You had your chance to show me some affection)
You had your chance to give me more
(You had your chance to give me more, baby)
And now that she's found new direction
You make your way to my back door

What makes you think the whole world wants you?
Give steel a kiss and it will bend
The flesh is weak and when it's all been said and done
The spirit's all that's left in the end

If you have to saddle your high horse
Go on and ride out of my sight
(Ride out of my sight)
You never had the time of day for me, you know
And now you want to spend the night

You're big with the come on like it's no big deal
No big deal to you
You let the wild wind blow your course
(Wild wind blow your course)
I do not want the dirt from your shoes
Or from the hooves of your high horse

I do not want the dirt from your shoes
Or from the hooves of your high horse
From your high horse
From your high horse, yeah
