Everybody loves a "horse song" right? I actually like this song because of the upbeat melody set against the somewhat dark subject of an outlaw's capture and hanging. Back in the days of the old west there was a protocol of who got the hangee's (is that a word?) property after his demise. I'm sure the preacher and the undertaker required some form of payment for their services. The lyrics are from an onlooker's point of view who exuberantly states, "Man! I'd like to have that Pinto pony!" You'd think this song was written over a hundred years ago but it was penned in the seventies by singer-songwriter Paul Siebel and his recording can be found on his "Gypsy Jack Knife" album. I have the vinyl LP but you can get Siebel's two album combo "Woodsmoke & Oranges / Jack Knife Gypsy" on amazon.
In this clip you're hearing my multi-track as I played-sync while recording the video. Except for the missed pickup notes I'm playing the accurate rhythm guitar part. - FK
