Lyrics
IVORY HORSE
He left the golden city - Took his name off of the store
He said, "My friend, I just can't live here any more"
His home is in the country, where the crystal rivers flow
Got his horse from where she boarded, locked the door.

Said he'd gone without his freedom, too long for keeping score
The city left him empty, his spirit needs to soar
Rode off on an Ivory Horse, and left me all alone
He said, "My friend, I just can't live here any more"

Chorus - He rides an Ivory Horse, with mane of honey spun
He rides an Ivory Horse, with mane of honey spun

Lived without him for awhile, the city is my home
But soon I found I had to find him on my own
So I left my golden city, headed for the skies of blue
Rode in an ivory car, in my mind, just one clue

Chorus - He rides an Ivory Horse, with mane of honey spun
He rides an Ivory Horse, with mane of honey spun
