Once kept in a stable snug and warm
But now he's growing old in open fields
He's forced to go
He often stands in hail, rain, freezing snow
He's certain that his master
Doesn't mean him any harm

Dapple Rose he doesn't want you anymore
Times gone by you will remember
Dapple Rose you are cold and old and slow
Times gone by you will remember

His clothing was a shiny coat so fine
But now he's growing old
And his beauty does decay
One night he heard his master frown and say
No poor old bones could stand this life of mine

Dapple Rose he doesn't want you anymore
Times gone by you will remember
Dapple Rose you were cold and old and slow
Times gone by you will remember

His food was of the best corn and best hay
But now there's no such thing
And he hardly eats at all
He lives on sprouts that grow behind the wall
I doubt if he'll be lucky to last another day

Dapple Rose he doesn't want you anymore
Times gone by you will remember
Dapple Rose you were cold and old and slow
Times gone by you will remember

Don't feel so bad, feel so sad
No more wearing shiny glory
Now they hang upon the wall
The hall in some far gone manor
Not a soul realizes you're a Dapple Rose of fame
