INTRO (see TAB below):
D               F                                  
Up and down the old homestead                      
C         G6/B  Gm6/Bb              D              
The naked rider gallops through his head           
F                                 
And although the moon isn't full                   
C         G6/B     Gm6/Bb    D                     
He still feels the pull                            


Out on the floor where the cowboys dance      
Approaching slowly at a glance                
Here comes the shadow of his stance           
The reins are fallin' from his hands.         

Why do you ride that crazy horse?             
Inquires the shadow with little remorse       
Just then a priest comes down the stairs      
With a sack of dreams and old nightmares.

*Riff 1*                                      

Who are you, the rider says                   
You dress in black but you talk like a Fed    
You spout ideas from books that you read      
Don't you care about this guy's head?         

Just then the sound of hoofbeats was heard    
And the sky was darkened by a prehistoric bird
Who flew between the unfulfilled moon         
And the naked rider, to a telephone booth.    

We'll call the moon and see what's up             
I've got some change in this little tin cup       
We'll say that the shadow is growin' dim          
And we need some light to get back to him         

Dm7                  Dm7(3)                       
Just one call should do it all                    
Dm7(6)                        Dm7(8)              
I'll carve this number on the wall                
Dm7(10)                                   
With my beak.                                     

*Riff 2*                                          

Flying feathers were all around                   
The air was filled with a ringing sound.          
Two more birds, the second and the third          
Came down from the sky to deliver the word.       

Where have you been, they said to the first       
Get back to the clouds, we're dying of thirst     
There's not enough time to make that call         
Let's ditch this rider, shadow and all.           

Dm7   Dm7(3)   Dm7(6)     Dm7(8)     Dm7(10)      

The sky was filled with the beautiful birds       
Still on the ground some crying was heard         
With his dime in his hand and his hand on the dial
His ears were sweating as he forced a smile.      

Hoofbeats beating across the range                
He rode through the night with his cup of change  
Tired and beaten he fell into slumber             
But up in the sky they still had his number.      

*Riff3*                                 

Up and down the old homestead           
The naked rider gallops through his head
And although the moon isn't full        
He still feels the pull,                

Dm7                                     
Still feels the pull.                   
Dm7(3)                                  
Still feels the pull.                   
Dm7(6)                                  
Still feels the pull.                   
Dm7(8)                                  
Still feels the pull.
