The Stallion Lyrics

by Kris Kristofferson

Stay if you want to, don't be ashamed
Leavin' is easy, Lord, losin's the same
Life is a promise nobody keeps
Lay yourself down girl, rock me to sleep

We were the wild ones, proud in our prime
Me and the stallion, Lord, one of a kind
See how we run, Lord, see how we fall
Ridin' for moonlight, we done it all

Well, the daylight was dying, rooks in the wind
She stood before me, stripped to the skin
Next to my stallion, she purely shown
Gliding to moonlight, starlight and stone

The moonlight is silver, starlight is cold
Wakin' to laughter, shakin' my soul
She was runnin' my stallion, naked and free
Ridin' for moonlight, gone like a dream

Stay if you want to, don't be ashamed
Leavin' is easy, Lord, losin's the same
Life is a promise nobody keeps
Lay yourself down girl, rock me to sleep
