Mount, in the morning dew;
A man loved me when the world was new.
Ride, ride while the dawn is cool:
I was angry and he was a fool.
Ride, ride through the shadows grey:
I told him to go and he went away.
Ride, ride through the sun's first gold;
I go alone now the world is old.
Ride, ride, for your horse is good;
He never came to me or understood.
Ride, ride, and you'll travel far;
I tore my heart out and hid the scar.
