The Lyrics

This ole Horse once won the Derby
This ole Horse took that big race
This ole Horse was very famous
Even ran the steeplechase
This ole Horse wore bouquet collars
This ole Horse had fortitude
Now, he's ready for the glue pot
And some cans of doggie food

Ain't a-gonna ride This Horse no longer
Ain't a-gonna ride This Horse no more
Way too old and really humpback
And his belly rubs the floor
Ain't got time to feed him fodder
Nor to fix the stall restraint
Ain't a' gonna need This Horse no longer
Worth a lot a' money, This ole Horse, ain't

This ole Horse is a-gettin' shaky
This ole Horse is a-really old
This ole Horse can't stand the rain
This ole Horse can't stand the cold
His poor knees, you can see 'em shiver
And I know he feels the pain
In his eyes I see the sadness
While a new young horse, I train


This Ole Horse is afraid of thunder
Way too weak to excercise
This ole Horse just stands and whinnys
He can't shake his tail at flies
Gonna call up that vet'rinary
He's a' no longer in his prime
Just like me, he's tuckered out
So long, Seabiscuit, it's slaughter time

So long, Seabiscuit, it's slaughter time
