Molly And Tenbrooks The Racehorse Song Written by: Unknown, Copyright: Unknown
Midi sequenced by Barry Taylor
Tenbrooks was a bay horse, had a long, shaggy mane
Rode all around Memphis, beat the big Memphis train Run,
Tenbrooks, run, 'cause if you don't run Molly's gonna beat you to the bright shinin' sun. Bright shinin' sun. The women were weepin', their babes cryin'
too The nine proud horses came thunderin' through With Molly the leader, her head tossin' high With Molly the leader, and Tenbrooks behind She came flyin'
by. We shouted to Kuyper, you're not ridin' right Molly is a beatin' Tenbrooks out of sight Kuyper, oh Kuyper, Kuyper my
son Give him the bridle, and let Tenbrooks run. Let Tenbrooks run. Tenbrooks looked at Molly, "Your face is so red Been
runnin in the hot sun with a feverish head You're fallin' behind me, I'm out here all alone." Molly says to Tenbrooks, "I'm leavin' this world I'm goin' on home."
Oh, run fetch old Tenbrooks and tie him in the shade They're buryin' Molly in a coffin ready made Out in California Molly done as she pleased, Back in Kentucky, got beat with all
ease Got beat with all ease.
