Verse I
I lit out across the prarie
Far away from glass and steel
Out past the four lane highway
Up into the Texas hills
I found what I'd forgotten
I keep the picture in my mind
The land of my grandfathers
Look what we left behind

Chorus I:
And that pony was runnin' like the wind was at his heels
He was runnin' from cars and trains, video games and my bills
Together we remembered how it felt to be free
Beneath a Texas blue sky
Just a pony and me

Verse ii:
Camped out beneath the moonlight
Roaring river rushing by
Didn't think about tomorrow
We were livin' for this night
Dawn broke across the water
We were gone with the sun
Lost in time out in the badlands
I let that pony run

Chorus ii:
And that pony was runnin' like lightning from the sky
He was runnin' from broken dreams, foolish schemes and sad goodbyes
Together we remembered how it felt to be free
Beneath a Texas blue sky
Just a pony and me

Verse iii:
Now I'm back here in the city
Lookin' at the streets below
Life here seems to be so busy
Every things so stop and go
But I don't have to stay here
I can free the ties that bind
In a land where there's no fences
If it's only in my mind

Chorus iii:
And that pony was runnin' like he'd never run before
He was runnin' from world affairs, unanswered prayers and swingin' doors
Together we remembered how it felt to be free
Beneath a Texas blue sky
Just a pony and me

Tag:
Together we remembered how it felt to be free
Beneath a Texas blue sky
Just a pony and me
