Six White Horses

Lyrics: Clyde Moody
Music: Clyde Moody

Payed by Jerry Garcia with the Log Cabin Boys in a one-off performance in 1986. It was part of a medley with Mystery Train, with which it has verse in common (apart from that verse, all that was sung were the first two verses below).

Not to be confused with the song with the same title written by Larry Murray and recorded by Tommy Cash in 1969.

I'm leavin' you to worry you off my mind
Lord I'm leavin' you to worry you off my mind
Cause you keep me worried troubled
Troubled all the time

Six white houses going two by two
Six white houses going two by two
That some other woman
Has took my love from you

The train I'm ridin' is sixteen coaches long
The train I'm ridin' is sixteen cosches long
That woman I'm lovin'
She's got another man and gone

If you don't believe I'm leavin' just count the days I'm gone
If you don't believe I'm leavin' just count the days I'm gone
Next time you see your daddy
It'll be on judgement morning

Ah, tell me pretty woman which way the river runs
Ah, tell me pretty woman which way the river runs
It runs from by back door
To the set of the rising sun
