Stewball (3) There's a big day in Dallas, And I wish I a-was there Spend my las' hundred dollars On that iron gray mare See her travel, all day long, long, long, See her travel all day long, All day long. Well I don't mind horse racing If it wasn't for my wife. Old Stewball may stumble And away with my life Wife and baby, left behind, yeah yeah WIfe and baby, left behind Left behind. Old stewball was a black horsw Jus' as slick as a mole, Had a ring 'round his fore-shoulder And it shined just like gold. Shined like gold, shined like gold, Lord, Lord Shined like gold, shined like gold Shined like gold. Old Stewball was a racehorse, But the poor horse was blind. He ran so fast in Texas Left his shadow behind Behind, behind Left his shadow behind Left behind. Old Stewball was a racehorse And old Molly, she was too. Old Molly, she stumbled And Old Stewball, he just flew. Round the track, round the track, yeah, yeah Round the track, round the track Round the track.
