The Lyrics

On a hill over there, stands an Old Haggard Hoss
A vision of swayback and lame
I still love that Old Hoss, and can't put him to rest
I'd just die if for glue, he was slain

So, I'll cherish my Old Haggard Hoss
Poor old Smoky, just wants to lie down
No more rides on that Old Haggard Hoss
Now he's gray, where he used to be brown..

Tho', my Old Haggard Hoss ain't much use to the world
He's a favorite attraction to me
I remember good times, when he ran like the wind
His tail and mane streamed gracefully

In that Old Haggard Hoss, bony ribbed to the spine,
Still, shining beauty, I see
It was on that Old Hoss, as a youth that I'd ride
No saddle, just galloping free

So, I'll cherish that Old Haggard Hoss
Poor old Smoky just wants to lie down
No more rides on my Old Haggard Hoss,
Turning gray, where he used to be brown

To that Old Haggard Hoss, I will always be true
And show kind affection and love
Made arrangements today, when he passes away
He will, like Roy's Trigger, be stuffed

Yes, I cherish that Old Haggard Hoss
Tho' old Smoky just wants to lie down
No more rides on my Old Haggard Hoss
But, for always I'll have him around..

Now, for always, I'll have him around..
