Ray LaMontagne – “All the Wild Horses”

All the wild horses
All the wild horses
Tethered with tears in their eyes
May no man’s touch ever tame
May no man’s reigns ever chain you
And may no man’s weight ever defrayed your soul
And as for the clouds
Just let them roll
Roll away
Roll away
As for the clouds
Just let them roll
Roll away
Roll away

    You’re concerned about unwanted horses going to slaughter, yet you want to put carriage horses out of work?

    Um … yes? That doesn’t mean carriage horses have to go to slaughter. Unless you send them there, of course.
