Classic Lyrics — checking out edition — My Ride’s Here

th 4.jpeg

I was staying at the Marriott
With Jesus and John Wayne
I was waiting for a chariot
They were waiting for a train
And the sky was full of carrion
I’ll take the mazuma
Said Jesus to Marion
That’s the 3:10 to Yuma
My ride’s here
My ride’s here
My ride’s here
My ride’s here

The Houston sky was changeless
We galloped through bluebonnets
I was wrestling with an angel
You were working on a sonnet
You said I believe the seraphim
Will gather up my pinto
And carry us away, Jim
Across the San Jacinto
My ride’s here
My ride’s here
My ride’s here
My ride’s here

Shelley and Keats were out in the street
And even Lord Byron was leaving for Greece
While back in the Hilton
Last but not least
Milton was holding his sides
Saying you bravos had better be ready to fight
Or we’ll never get out of East Texas tonight
But the trail is long and the river is wide
And my ride’s here

I was staying at the Westin
I was playin’ to a draw
When in walked Charlton Heston
With the Tablets of the Law
He said, It’s still the Greatest Story
I said man I’d like to stay
But I’m bound for glory
I’m on my way
My ride’s here…
